Pressure is defined as the force acting per unit area. If we take a hydraulic system of a car, the pressure that will be acting on both piston will be the same. If we apply a small force on the pedal, it will result in a bigger force on the brakes. Here is a multiple choice question that is troubling me: There are 2 identical stone tiles. One is vertical (Small surface area acting on the ground) and the other is horizontal (Large surface area acting on the ground). Through the above definition, I would say the pressure is the same while the forces are different. But the answer was that the pressure was different and the forces are the same. Could you explain the answer? Thanks in advance!
