The difference between force and pressure is that “Force is an agency which moves or tends to move, stops or tends to stop the motion of a body. Force is the vector quantity. While pressure is the force acting normally per unit area on the surface of a body. It is a scalar quantity.

## Relation between pressure and force

Mathematically, pressure can be written and calculated as:

Pressure = Force/Area

P =F/A

It means greater will be the force greater will be the pressure.

## Difference between force and pressure in tabular form

Force | Pressure |

Force is the push and pulls of an object. | Pressure the force applying normally per unit area. |

Its SI unit is “Newton” denoted by N. | Its SI unit is Pascal, denoted by “pa”. |

It is measured by spring balance or dynamo-meter. | It is measured by Monometer. |

It is a vector quantity. | It is a scalar quantity. |

It applies to faces, vertices, and edges. | It applies to faces only. |

Its velocity can be changed. | Its velocity cannot be changed. |
