You are lying down on your bed in the dorm, which measures 3 feet by 6 feet. Calculate the pressure in psi (lbs / sq inch) your body exerts, spread out upon the total area bed. 1 foot = 12 inches.

This is not a geography question! Don't you need to know your weight for this calculation?

Its a geography class but i guess it is a physics question, I believe you do need to know your weight, i just need help setting the problem up.
