Pressure (symbol: P or p) is the ratio of force to the area over which that force is distributed. Pressure is force per unit area applied in a direction perpendicular to the surface of an object.

In an industrial or manufacturing context, "pressure" typically refers to the force exerted per unit area on a material or system. It can also refer to the force required to maintain a certain level of compression or expansion within a system. Pressure plays an important role in many industrial processes, from manufacturing and refining to transportation and storage.
