Pressure and measurement can be extremely complex and complicated. However, for most systems it is relatively easy to obtain accurate pressure measurements if the proper techniques are used.
What is fluid pressure ? Fluid pressure can be understood as the measure of force per-unit-area exerted by a fluid, acting perpendicularly to any surface it contacts (a fluid can be either a gas or liquid, fluid and liquid are not synonymous). The standard SI unit for pressure measurement is the Pascal (Pa) which is equivalent to one newton per square meter (N/m2) or the KiloPascal (kPa) where 1 kPa = 1000 Pa.......
