WHAT IS PRESSURE
Pressure may be defined as the action of a force against anopposing force. Pressure is usually measured as a force per unitarea.
P = F/A
Where,P = PressureF = Force acting on surfaceA = Area of the surface
Pressure is considered the basic process variable in that it isutilized for measurement of flow (difference of two pressure), level(head or back pressure), and even temperature (fluid pressure in afilled thermal system ).
