1. Calculating pressure

1.1. Force /Area

2. Increasing and decreasing pressure

2.1. Increase: Increase the surface area in contact

2.2. Decrease: Decrease the surface area in contact

3. Force

3.1. A force is a push or a pull and are all around us. Everything we do needs a force.A force cannot be seen but the effect can be felt.
