Pressure


Read here about a physical property that can be measured and depicted in a scalometer.

Units of Pressure

The pascal is the SI derived unit for measuring pressure. It is derived from Newton per square meter (N/m^2), which in turn can be expressed as kilogram-meter per second squared.

Exponential Nature of Pressure


The pressure of a volume, be it solid, fluid or gas, is by its very nature logarithmic due to the third power ratio of volume to linear movement.

Examples Of Pressure Metrics


Richter scale.
