- Kilogram-force : A unit of force which will accelerate 1 kilogram of mass to 9.80665 m/s2, the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn).
- 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.
- Pascal (unit) : The SI unit of pressure; the force of one newton acting uniformly over an area of one square metre.
- Pound-force : A measurement unit of force which will accelerate 1 pound of mass to 9.80665 m/s2 (≈ 32.17405 ft/s2), the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn).
- 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.
- 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.
- Blaise Pascal : French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher.
- Boiling point : The temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid equals the external environmental pressure surrounding the liquid and the liquid initiates boiling.
