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?

• physics -

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
