Expert Answer:


  • Thrust is the force that a body exerts perpendicularly on a surface.

        Thrust = Pressure × Area

  • Its SI unit is newton (N).
  • It is numerically equal to the weight of the object.



  • The thrust on a unit area of surface is called pressure.

         Pressure = Thrust / Area

  • Its SI unit is newton per metre squared or pascal (Pa).


Note: Kindly ask the other question as a separate query.
