Students learn how to calculate the pressure of an object at rest as a compound measure of force and area. As learning progresses students use algebraic techniques to calculate the force or area when the pressure is known.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to calculate pressure as a compound measure of force and area.
- Most students should be able to calculate a pressure, force or area when given the other two measures.
- Some students should be able to convert between metric units of pressure.
