- Chemistry : The science of matter, or of the electrical or electrostatical interactions of matter.
- Engineering : The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to economically use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
- Physics : The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Chemical engineering : The field of engineering that deals with industrial and natural processes involving the chemical, physical or biological transformation of matter or energy into forms useful for mankind, economically and safely without compromising the environment
- Civil engineering : A broad field of engineering dealing with the design, construction, and maintenance of fixed structures, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems.
- Mechanical engineering : The branch of engineering concerned with the utilisation of the basic laws of mathematics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and system dynamics in order to create unique solutions to physical problems.
- Pressure : A ratio equal to the force applied perpendicular to the surface of the area divided by that area (force/area).
- Atmosphere : The layers of gas surrounding stars and planets.
- Atmospheric pressure : The ambient air pressure at any given point in Earth's atmosphere.

- International System of Units : Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela.
- Isaac Newton : (1642–1727) English physicist and mathematician, best known for his elucidation of the universal theory of gravitation and his development of calculus.
- Kilogram-force per square centimeter : The kilogram-force per square centimeter (symbol: kgf/cm2 or often just kg/cm2) is a unit of pressure defined as the force exerted by one kilogram-force on one square centimeter.
- Newton : SI derived unit of force, named after Isaac Newton, equal to the amount of force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one metre per second per second.
- Pound per square inch : A unit of pressure in the U.S. customary units and defined as the pressure exerted by a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.
- Reference conditions of gas temperature and pressure : The temperature and pressure conditions that define the density of a gas and serve to document a stated gas volume.
- Thermodynamics : The statistical description of the properties of molecular systems
- Torr : A non-SI unit of pressure (symbol: torr) with ratio of 760 to 1 atmosphere, selected to be approximately equal to the fluid pressure exerted by 1 millimeter of mercury (symbol: mmHg) and thus 1 torr ≈ 1 mmHg.
- U.S. customary units : The units of measurement that are currently used in the United States.
