So lets see force is measured in what? And pressure is measured in what? USA stuff only not other units.

pressure
the continuous physical force exerted on or against an object by something
force
strength or energy as an attribute of physical action or movement

So according to the definitions the best one is pressure, since when measuring the spring, that is the definition that best applies.
So SPRING PRESSURE is the winner.

It is only FORCE when the engine is running.

All of Europe consider our "American" pronunciation of aluminum to be barbaric...

Top 5 offensive pronunciations has to include calling NOS ....Naz.... this one just hurts at multiple levels
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
