English term or phrase:pressure times area
"Pascal’s Law explains that a confined body gas exerts force in all directions that can be measured at right angles to the surfaces it contacts. This property of a gas is important to remember because it explains the principle behind the construction of all the devices, including vacuum devices, that use a difference in pressure to function.
When we note that force is equal to *pressure times area* we see that either an increase in pressure or an increase in the area will produce larger amounts of force."
