 Mentor P: 41,489 Why not do something with fluids? Your first equation, "p = density weight x height" is often written: $$p = \rho_{weight} h$$, where p is the pressure at some depth "h" below the surface of a fluid of weight-density (weight per unit volume) $$\rho_{weight}$$. Your second equation, p=F/A, is the fundamental definition of pressure.
