Calculate the pressure when a force of 200 N is exerted on an area of:

(a) 10m2 (b) 5m2

Given: Force applied is given as: 200N 
Now, we know that the Pressure is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area. 
or Pressure = Force/ Area

(a) Area = 10m2

 P= 200N/10m2

or P= 20 Nmor 20 Pascal


(b) Area = 10m2

 P= 200N/5m2

or P= 40 Nmor 40 Pascal
