What is the equation for weight

Weight = mass x gravity. E.g. A 100g bag of sugar on earth has a weight of 1kg


What is the equation for pressure?

Pressure = force / area. If there is a small area, there will be much pressure, like in an egg slicer.


How do you work out pressure in fluids?

Pressure = density x gravity x depth
Pressure at a point in a gas or liquid acts equally in all directions


What is the equation for density?

Density = mass / volume
