Let us assume that pressure = linear momentum/volume Pressure = mass* velocity / volume (where momentum=mass*velocity) Unit of Pressure = Kgm or Kg-----------------(1)

By the definition of pressure: Pressure = Force/Area Unit of pressure = Kgm or Kg----------------(2)

Since 1 is not equal to 2 Pressure is not a linear momentum per unit volume.

Dimensional formula of pressure = [ M¹ L⁻¹ T⁻² ]................(1) Dimensional formula of momentum = [ M¹ L¹ T⁻¹ ] Dimensional formula of volume = [ M° L³ T° ]

momentum / volume = [ M¹ L⁻² T⁻¹ ] .........................(2) (1) ≠ (2) Pressure can not be defined as the linear momentum per unit volume.
