    Pressure at sea level is 101325 Pascals. One pascal exerts a force of one Newton per square meter.

    1. Find 40% of 101325.
    2. That number will also equal the force in N on each square meter.
    3. Find the area of the door.
    4. Multiply the answer of #1 above by the answer of #3.

    40530 = 40% of 101325
    This number equals the net force (N per Square meter).
    Area of door: Width x Height= 2x40530
    = 81060
