thanks! but when i checked the conversion online, 750 dyne converts to 75 Pa, not 75kPa, which conversion is correct? Is there a reason you have a different conversion, that I'm not seeing?

These types of problems are easier if you get in the habit of including the units during the conversion. It then becomes second nature when the units are less familiar. 1 km = 1000 meters so the conversion is 1000 m km-1 1 m = 100 centimeters so the conversion is 100 cm m-1 61...
