why pressure depends on surface areas

Asked by Abheer razdan | 17th Jan, 2014, 08:02: PM

Expert Answer:

It is found that when a certain force is applied on a smaller area, it produces greater impact; while if the same force is applied on a larger area, it produces a lesser impact. This impact is called pressure which is defined as force per unit area.
