## Gauge Pressure Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the gauge pressure.

Pg = Pa – Pat

- Where Pg is the gauge pressure
- Pa is the absolute pressure
- Pat is the atmospheric pressure

## Gauge Pressure Definition

Gauge pressure is a pressure measure by an instrument minus the atmospheric pressure surrounding the gauge.

## FAQ

**What is a gauge pressure?**

A gauge pressure is a pressure measured by an instrument without taking into account the atmospheric pressure around it.

**How is gauge pressure calculated?**

The gauge pressure is calculate by subtracting the atmospheric pressure from the absolute pressure.
