  1. a force that compels
  2. the force applied to a unit area of surface; measured in pascals (si unit) or in dynes (cgs unit); force per unit area
  3. the somatic sensation of pressure; pressure sensation

  1. to apply pressure to
  2. to pressurize
  3. to cook in a pressure cooker

  1. abbreviation, P or p; 1; Force per unit area; It can be expressed in any appropriate units of force and area (e.g., newtons per square meter, pounds per square inch, grams per square centimeter, etc.)
  2. the application of force over part or all of a surface
  3. in physics, the force acting normally (at right angles) to a body per unit surface area; The si unit of pressure is the pascal (newton per square meter), equal to 0;01 millibars; In a fluid (liquid or gas), pressure increases with depth; At the edge of Earth's atmosphere, pressure is zero, whereas at sea level atmospheric pressure due to the weight of the air above is about 100 kilopascals (1,013 millibars or 1 atmosphere); Pressure is commonly measured by means of a barometer, manometer, or Bourdon gauge; Pressure at a depth h in a fluid of density d is equal to hdg, where g is the acceleration due to gravity
