# 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
