For the derivation of pressure Force if divided by time taken by particle by particle in covering the distance and not time of collision?

Expert Answer:

Pressure is defined as force acting per unit area. I am not sure why and how come you are saying that for derivation of force, you need to divide force by time taken for the particle to cover a given distance. 
I am not sure if you are talking about pressure only, or if you are talking about impulse = F.t  where t refers to the short time interval for which 2 bodies were in contact.
