If 30 N of force is exerted over an area of 20 m2, how much pressure is being applied?

  • physics -

    pressure= force/area

  • physics -

    oh yes, units. remember that pressure has a special name. You can use N/m^2, but in honor of Pascal, we call 1N/m^2 a Pascal, symbol P. This is not a very large unit, atmospheric pressure is 101.3kP
