In physics, Pressure is equal to Density (PRESSURE= (DENSITY) (g) (h) where g= gravitational acceleration and h is the height of the fluid column. Pressure is when a force is distributed over a surface. Example- wind provides a force to move a boat but the force provided by the wind is spread over the surface of the sails of the boat.

Pressure, on the other hand is defined as force per unit area. The relationship of pressure and force can be expressed as P=F/A. Fluid exerts pressure, and in order to calculate pressure, density of the fluid should be calculated. The result is p=phg where p=pressure, phg= (density)(height)(gravitational acceleration)

Pressure depends on the density in a fluid. Equating work to potential energy proves a relationship between pressure and the mass of an element in the fluid, mass is just density.
