What is the Dimensional Formula of Pressure?

Posted in Dimensional Formulae | Email This Post Email This Post |

Pressure is defined as force per unit area.Mathematically its formula is

Pressure = Force/Area
Now, we have already derived the dimensional formula for force and area in previous posts. So
Dimensional Formula of Force= M1L1T-2
Dimensional Formula of Area= M0L2T0

Dimensional Formula of Pressure = (M1L1T-2)/(M0L2T0)

Dimensional Formula of Pressure = M1L-1T-2
SI unit of Pressure is Nm-2

Note – Stress also has the same dimensional formula

    I was using pressure as (mass/Area) instead of (Force/Area), resulting a wrong answer. Now it’s okay. thank you

    Can I get some help? I can’t understand why is it ML-1T-2 and not ML-2T-2???? Shouldn’t the L be to the power of negative 2 because It was a denominator to the power of two and we should add a negative to it as we remove the fraction??? If you have any Info or advice, I would love to hear.=
