Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the difference between Force and Pressure.

Comparison and Difference between Force and Pressure

1. Force values are distributed across the selected geometry while pressure values are constant over the selected geometry.

2. Force can be applied to faces, edge and vertices. Pressure is applied only to faces.

3. Coomponents of force can be defined in all 3 vectors (local x,y,z). Pressure can only be defined in one vector.

4. Unit of Force is Newton N. Pressure is defined in units of force per unit area i.e. N/m2.
