Units of Pressure Description

 • Pressure (or stress) has the dimension mass per length time squared. The SI unit of pressure is the pascal, which is defined as a newton per square meter, or a kilogram per meter second squared.
 • Maple knows the units of pressure listed in the following table.

 An asterisk ( * ) indicates the default context, an at sign (@) indicates an abbreviation, and under the prefixes column, SI indicates that the unit takes all SI prefixes, IEC indicates that the unit takes IEC prefixes, and SI+ and SI- indicate that the unit takes only positive and negative SI prefixes, respectively.  Refer to a unit in the Units package by indexing the name or symbol with the context, for example, pascal[SI] or mmHg[standard]; by using an abbreviation, for example, at; or, if the context is indicated as the default, by using only the unit name or symbol, for example, pascal or mmHg.
