First of all, I want to say that this is my first puzzle and I hope you guys like it!

Here is the puzzle:

I am found everywhere,

Even in the air.

I control the weather,

but also machinery.

I can destroy things with my strength,

small and big.

No one can win from me,

No one can handle me.

As long I am getting strength.

My best friend is Pascal,

He keeps an eye on me when I push.

Not just in the air,

but also in the water and in the ground.

My name is used for everything by humans.

Not only for scientific reasons,

but also for time and social activities.

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ I am afraid, this isn't a good riddle. Riddles should generally contain some metaphors or word-play. Yours was too easy and Pascal was a dead giveaway. In the future,try to not give away the answer with a clue and use wordplay to subtly point towards the intended answer. (I downvoted) $\endgroup$ – Sid Nov 11 '16 at 15:52

    $\begingroup$ When making riddles, try add some element of contradiction. Eg: The more I dry the wetter I get (a towel). $\endgroup$ – Oreo Nov 17 '16 at 9:17

Clearly

Pressure

I am found everywhere,

Even in the air.

Atmospheric pressure

I control the weather,

but also machinery.

Pressure is an important factor in weather determination

I can destroy things with my strength,

small and big.

High pressure can cause substances to crumble

No one can win from me,

No one can handle me.

OP suggests- the phrase-can't handle the pressure

As long I am getting strength.

Probably just filler. Strength might indicate more force

My best friend is Pascal,

He keeps an eye on me when I push.

SI unit of Pressure is pascal

Not just in the air,

but also in the water and in the ground.

Pressure in water, air. In deep water $P=hdg$

My name is used for everything by humans.

Yep, we do

Not only for scientific reasons,

but also for time and social activities.

Time-pressure, exam-pressure,Stress. Not all of them are scientific.

  • $\begingroup$ It seems this one was too easy. Just one comment: "No one can handle me" would indicate the common phrase "Can't handle the pressure ". $\endgroup$ – Hugo Woesthuis Nov 11 '16 at 15:25
  • $\begingroup$ I'd like to comment that there's a somewhat famous riddle with the same answer, which is apparently alot more difficult, but I can't find it. $\endgroup$ – greenturtle3141 Nov 11 '16 at 16:37

Pressure as pascal is the unit of pressure and also it is not only applicable for scientific reasons but also for time and social activities

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling SE. Unfortunately, your answer to this riddle, and the explanations, were already given in the other answer, so this doesn't add any value. $\endgroup$ – Glorfindel Nov 12 '16 at 11:00
