# What is the relationship between area and pressure of a constant force?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 02/20/2011

Pressure is a force exerted by a gas or liquid, and is measured in so many units of force per unit area covered. The most common one we meet is pounds per square inch, in your car tyres for instance. So the actual force experienced is the pressure times the area which it acts on

THE SIMPLE RELATION BETWEEN PRESSURE AND AREA WITH A CONSTANT FORCE IS

THAT THEY ARE INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL TO EACH OTHER MEANS IF AREA INCREASES THEN PRESSURE DECREASES AND IF AREA DECREASES THEN PRESSURE INCREASES

P = 1/A

P=pressure

A=area
