Answer:
Thrust:
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.
 
Pressure:
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).
