  1. Calculate the pressure on a wall having an area of 20 m2 when force of 100 N acts on it?


    Step 1 :  

    Given: Force F = 100 N, Area A = 20 m2



    Step 2 :  

    The pressure P is given by


    Pressure = $\frac{Force}{Area}$


                 = $\frac{100}{20}$


                 = 5 N/m2.



    Answer  :  

    Pressure is 10 N/m2.



  2. Find the area of the container if a force of 160 N acts giving out the pressure of 20 Pascal.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: Force F = 160 N, Pressure P = 20 Pascal



    Step 2 :  

    The Area A is given by


    Area = $\frac{Force}{Pressure}$


                 = $\frac{160}{20}$


                 = 8 m2.



    Answer  :  

    Area of container A = 8 m2.
