    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.

    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.

      that was super easy without the sarcasm of course. lol you spoke layman terms. Thanks Andrew I'm glad youre answering all my questions get you some yahoo points.
