calculate pressure produced by a force of 562 N acting on an area of 2.0 m/2?
- MyRankLv 65 months ago
Force (F) = 562 N
Area (A) = 2 m/sec²
Pressure (P) =?
We know that,
Pressure (P) = Force (F)/ Area (A)
= 562 N/ 2 m/sec²
= 281 pa
∴ Pressure (P) = 281 pa.Source(s): http://myrank.co.in/

When I was in grade 2 in primary school they called this a "how many".
By grade 4 they called it a division.
What part of "Pressure = Force divided by Area" is a difficult concept?
Or is it the "divide by 2 " that is hard.
P = F/A = 562/2 =
Now lets see. 2 into 5 goes twice carry the one.
2 into 16 goes 8 with no carry.
2 into 2 goes 1.
Put them together to get 281 N/m^2 = 281 Pa
See how easy it all is?
The sarcasm was intended to put a bit of pressure onto you. Naturally people know how to divide by 2. But a PHYSICS student should know the definition of pressure.
P= F/A so a bit more study and keeping up with definitions is needed.
