*Here, we will find out the dimensional formula of Pressure.*

The formula of Pressure = force/area

The dimensional formula of force = [MLT^{–2}] [see here how to find the dimensional formula of force ]

The dimension of area = [L^{2}]

**Hence, the Dimensional formula of Pressure **

= **The dimensional formula of force / The dimensional formula of area****= [MLT ^{–2}]/[L^{2}]**

=

**[ML**

^{-1}T^{–2}] **Dimensional formula of Pressure** **= [ML^{-1}T^{–2}] **
