Thrust and Pressure:

  • The force acting on an object perpendicular to the surface is known as thrust.
  • The force acting on an unit area of a surface is known as pressure.

`"Pressure" = "Force" / "Area"`

  • The SI Unit of thrust is N/m2. It is called pascal(Pa).
  • Since, pressure is indirectly proportional to the surface area of the object, thus, pressure increases with decrease in surface area and decreases with increase in surface area.
  • Pressure applied on a fluid is transmitted in all directions.
