Physics

A gas sample is confined to a chamber with a movable piston. A small load is placed on the piston and the system is allowed to reach equilibrium, shown above. If the weight of the piston and the load is F=70.0 N and the piston has an area of A=9.00x10-4 m2, what is the pressure exerted on the piston by the gas?
