# Name Two Factors on Which the Pressure on a Surface Depends. - ICSE Class 8 - Physics

ConceptPressure - Unit

#### Question

Name two factors on which the pressure on a surface depends.

#### Solution

FACTORS AFFECTING THE PRESSURE:
(i) The surface area (A) on which thrust acts. More area, lesser is pressure.
(ii) The magnitude of thrust (F) acting on the surface
∵   p = "Thrust "/"Area" = F/A  More Thrust, more is pressure

Is there an error in this question or solution?
