A pressure cooker is shaped like a can
with a lid 25 cm in diameter. If the pressure
in the cooker can reach 3.0 atm, how much
force must the latches holding the lid onto the pot be designed to withstand?

I have F=PA
I have my P: 3.03 * 10^3 N/m^2
A=pi(.25 * 10^2m^2)^2

I'm not sure If I am doing it right.
