A marble cylinder that has a diameter of 42 cm and stands 1.25 m tall rests on a flat tile deck. What is the pressure exerted on the deck by the cylinder?
You will need to look up the density of marble.
Divide the weight of the marble cylinder (in Newtons) by the base area (in m^2). This will equal
(marble density)*height*g, in N/m^2
