Pressure is measured in pascal, which is the pressure of 1 newton over 1 square meter. (A newton is the amount of force needed to accelerate 1 kilogram by 1 meter per second per second.

In the English system, pressure is measured in pounds per square inch. A pound per square inch is equal to about 6,890 pascal.
