Pressure- Pressure is defined as force per unit area. The standard unit for pressure is the Pascal (Pa) or Newton per square meter (N/m2).

For an object placed on a surface, the force exerted on the surface by the object is the weight of the object, but in different orientations it might have a different area in contact with the surface and therefore exert a different pressure.


Gravitation – Gravitation oftentimes also termed as Gravity is a force which found among all material objects in the universe. For any two objects or particles having non-zero mass, the force of gravity tends to attract them toward each other. Gravity works on objects of all sizes, be these subatomic particles or clusters of galaxies.

Work, Energy and Power

Work - When a force acts upon an object and displaces it from its original position, it is said that work was done upon the object. There associates three key component to work - force, displacement, and reason or source.


Scalars - Scalars are quantities that are fully described by a magnitude (or numerical value) alone.

Examples of Scalar Quantities - mass, length, temperature, energy, pressure, volume, electric charge, space-time interval, invariant mass

Vectors - Vectors are quantities that are fully described by both a magnitude and a direction.

Name and Symbols of Different Physical Terms, Descriptions and SI Units
