State the differences between thrust and pressure

Asked by Tejas Kulkarni | 21st Oct, 2013, 05:25: PM

Expert Answer:

1. Thrust is the force that a body exerts perpendicularly on a surface.
2. Its SI unit is newton (N).
3. It is numerically equal to the weight of the object.
1. The thrust on an unit area of surface is called pressure. 
    Thus, pressure is ratio of thrust/force to the area.
2. Its SI unit is newton per metre squared or pascal (Pa).
