Stress
the average amount of force exerted per unit area. It is the internal resistance a material offers to being deformed and is measured in terms of the applied load. The effects of mechanical stress on a polymer can be measured using dynamic mechanical analysis.

Pressure
It is the force per unit area applied in a direction perpendicular to the surface of an object. Gauge pressure is the pressure relative to the local atmospheric or ambient pressure
