Hint:We know that pressure is defined as the force applied perpendicular to an object's surface per unit area. It is a scalar quantity. The unit of pressure is Pascal (Pa).
The mathematical formula for pressure:
${\rm{P}}\;{\rm{ = }}\;\dfrac{{\rm{F}}}{{\rm{A}}}$
Where P is Pressure, F is applied force, and A represents an area of cross-section.

Note:As pressure is the scalar quantity, it has no direction. When we apply pressure to a solid, it will be distributed over the object's area and become less. Also, the negative gradient of pressure is called force density. Another unit of pressure is ${\rm{N/}}{{\rm{m}}^2}$.
