The answer I would give is why does this matter to configuring, calibrating, or installing a process measurement device. LOL

This is what google says.

Find the area of that surface. Make sure that both values are in the correct units, i.e., newtons/meters squared or pounds/inches squared. **Divide the force by the area** . Your pressure will be expressed in pascals ΒΆ or pounds per square inch (psi).
