7.1 Pressure

This section covers the following syllabus (Physics 5059) requirements. 

  • define the term pressure in terms of force and area
  • recall and apply the relationship pressure = force / area to new situations or to solve related problems
  •  recall and apply the relationship pressure due to a liquid column = height of column × density of the liquid × gravitational field strength to new situations or to solve related problems
