CIE IGCSE Pressure
• Relate pressure to force and area, using appropriate
examples
• Recall and use the equation p = F/A
• Relate (without calculation) the pressure beneath a
liquid surface to depth and to density, using
appropriate examples
• Recall and use the equation p = hρg
• Describe the simple mercury barometer and
its use in measuring atmospheric pressure
• Use and describe the use of a manometer
Pressure – Stick notes in your book
• What pressure is the force per unit
area exerted by an object on a surface
with which it is in contact with.
• How to calculate it
• Pressure = Force / Area
• P=F/A
• Units N / m2
• Special unit the pascal Pa
• 1000 Pa = 1kPa kilopascal
Exercise 1: words to use surface area ,
weight , pressure, sink
1. Why do tractors have such large wheels?
The large wheels have a large surface area in contact with the
ground. Tractors have a large weight (force) and often have to
work on soft ground like mud and soil. The large area of the
tyres means that they put less pressure on the ground and they
are therefore less likely to sink.
2. Why do camels have such large feet?
Camels are often found in
deserts. The camels have a
large weight (force) The
large surface area of their
feet on the ground means
that they put less pressure
on the sand and are less
likely to sink into the sand.
Camels have large feet
Exercise 2: Pressure
Pressure tells us over what sort of area a _____
force is
acting. Pressure depends upon two factors: the force
that is being applied and the ____
area over which the
force is acting.
The larger the force, the greater the ________.
pressure The
______
smaller the force, the lower the pressure.
The smaller the area, the _______
greater the pressure. The
larger the area, the smaller the pressure.

Pressure Formula
The pressure formula allows you to calculate the pressure,
force or area for a problem given two of the factors.
Pressure =
Force
Area
Pressure measured in Pascals (Pa).
Force measured in Newtons (N).
Area measured in metres squared (m2).
1 Pa = 1 N/m²
Example
A force of 10 N acts over an area of 2 m2. What pressure is
created by the force?
Pressure = Force ÷ Area
Pressure = 10 ÷ 2 Pa
Pressure = 5 Pa or 5 N/m2
Pressure formula and triangle
• Pressure = Force / Area
• P=F/A
• Units N / m2 special unit the pascal Pa
Exercise 3: Hammer and Nail
A hammer is used to drive a nail into a wooden floor. The
hammer is brought down with a force of 200 N. The area of the
top of the nail is 0.5 cm2. What pressure is put upon the top of
the nail by the hammer blow?
Pressure = Force ÷ Area
Pressure = 200 N ÷ 0.5 cm2
Pressure = 400 N/cm2

Fluid Pressure
The pressure in SOLIDS always acts DOWNWARDS because
of the PULL of GRAVITY.
In FLUIDS (LIQUIDS and GASES) the pressure acts IN ALL
DIRECTIONS.
Pressure in fluids can be used to TRANSFER FORCES.
Also, in fluids, the PRESSURE INCREASES WITH DEPTH.

Pressure in Liquid
To calculate the pressure at a depth h and a
density ρ
Volume of liquid = base area x depth = Ah
Mass of liquid = density x volume = ρ Ah
Weight of liquid = mass x g
= ρ g Ah
g = 10 N/kg
Force on base = ρ g Ah
This force is acting on area A
Pressure = force / area = ρ g Ah = ρ g h

Pressure in water equation
Pressure = density x gravitational field strength x depth
p= ρ g h Pa
ρ = density

g = gravitational field strength
g= 10

h= depth – height of water – deep

Pressure in a liquid
If the density of water is 1000kg/m3,what is the
pressure due to the water at the bottom of a
swimming pool 2m deep?
p= ρ g h
ρ = 1000 g=10
h=2
Pressure in Liquid
This equation allows us to calculate the pressure at
any point below the surface of a liquid due to the
liquid alone.
To determine the total pressure at this point, we
must add on the pressure value at the water
surface which is due to the atmosphere (so is
called atmospheric pressure).
Atmospheric pressure varies slightly over the
earth's surface and changes due to weather
conditions –
The value used for calculations is
100 000 Pa = 1.0 x 105 Pa
Copy this
Total Pressure in liquids
= Water pressure + atmospheric pressure
p= ρ g h Pa + 100 000 Pa
Atmospheric pressure is

1 x 105 Pa

earth's surface and changes due to weather

Diver question
Example
(a)Calculate the pressure due to
water (density = 1 000 kg m-3)
at a point 20 m below the water
surface.
(b) Calculate the actual
pressure a diver would
experience if she was at this
point.

Air Pressure
Air pressure is usually 100000 N/m2.
The can contains air particles and is also
surrounded by air particles. They are
hitting the sides of the container on the
inside and the outside. The vacuum
pump removes the air particles from
inside the can. The pressure caused by
the particles on the outside collapses
the can.
Manometer
A mercury barometer can be made by
filling a long glass tube with mercury, and
then turning it upside down in a bowl of
mercury.
The mercury is held up by air pressure.
As the air pressure varies every day
(depending on the weather), the height of
the mercury varies. The height of the
mercury can be used to predict the
weather.
The height of the mercury is usually
760mm and this is called Standard
Atmospheric pressure (written 760mm
Hg).

Manometer
A manometer is a u-tube
containing a liquid, usually
water. It can be used to
measure the pressure of
the gas supply. The higher
the pressure the further
the water is pushed
around the u-tube and the
greater height h.

Rotating Forces
If an object is fixed at one end and a force is applied then the object
will rotate around the fixed end. We call this fixed end the PIVOT.
Which factors govern the TURNING EFFECT of a force?
The SIZE of the FORCE (F). The LARGER THE FORCE, the
GREATER THE TURNING EFFECT.
The DISTANCE (d) of the force from the pivot. The GREATER THE
DISTANCE of the FORCE FROM THE PIVOT, the GREATER THE
TURNING EFFECT.
We call the turning effect of a force the MOMENT of the force.

Moments Formula
The moments formula allows you to calculate the moments,
force or distance for a problem given two of the factors.
Moment = Force x Perpendicular distance of force from pivot
Moments measured in Newton metres (Nm).
Force measured in Newtons (N).
Distance measured in metres (m).
