# What is pressure and how is it created?

The force of gravity causes this air to exert a pressure on the surface. We call the force exerted per unit of area air pressure. The weight of the air exerts a pressure of about 100 kPa = 1 atm.

Also question is, what determines pressure in a hydraulic system?

The hydraulic motor is the rotary counterpart of the hydraulic cylinder. Pressure in a hydraulic system is like the voltage in an electrical system and fluid flow rate is the equivalent of current. The size and speed of the pump determines the flow rate, the load at the motor determines the pressure.

What is the pressure in a hydraulic system?

A hydraulic drive system is a quasi-hydrostatic drive or transmission system that uses pressurized hydraulic fluid to power hydraulic machinery. The term hydrostatic refers to the transfer of energy from pressure differences, not from the kinetic energy of the flow.

What is meant by hydraulic pressure?

The science behind hydraulics is called Pascal's principle. Essentially, because the liquid in the pipe is incompressible, the pressure must stay constant all the way through it, even when you're pushing it hard at one end or the other. Now pressure is defined as the force acting per unit of area.
