A typical brick has dimensions of 20.0 cm by 10.0 cm by 5.0 cm and weighs 20.0 N. How does the pressure exerted by a typical brick when it is resting on its smallest side compare to the pressure exerted when it is resting on its largest side

thanks!

surface area doesnt effect pressure exerted

You know the weight of the brick.

Then divide weight by area small end.

Divide weight by largest side.
