# Pressure sensor

The pressure sensor is modeled as a simple force-dependent resistor. During the simulation, the mouse can be used to set a force acting on the sensor. The greater the force, the greater the resistance.

In an automobile, the pressure sensor can determine the pressure of a fluid that requires measurement. The pressure is the product of the effective surface area and the force acting on the sensor.
