# Physics Tutorial 9.2 - Pressure. Solid Pressure

There are 3 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Pressure. Solid Pressure. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Pressure. Solid Pressure and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Pressure. Solid Pressure. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

• The meaning of pressure
• Factors affecting the pressure
• The unit of pressure and its representation in SI units
• Why pressure is a scalar?

## Introduction

Doctors often prescribe intramuscular injections when people get sick. Why nurses use thin needles when they jab a patient?

Why thin drill bits are more suitable than thick ones to open holes in the wall?

Why workers often put the concrete mixer on a wide plate (caterpillar track) instead of putting it directly on the ground?

I'm sure you can give convincing answers in your words to all the above questions. However, you will be even more convincing if you are able to explain the abovementioned situation in scientific terms. Therefore, if you are interested in such things, please read the following paragraphs in which the pressure-related phenomena are discussed.
