Hint:As we all know that to find the intensity of force, we must apply it on a body. The force applied is just the effort; its effect depends on the part of the object it is applied. For example, a force applied by a hammer on the body and a force applied by a pin on the body, both have different effects.

$P = \dfrac{F}{A}$
Here $P$ are the pressure, $F$ is the force applied, and $A$ is the surface area. Therefore, we can see that pressure depends on force and surface area.
