    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Mass =0.908kg
    Area= 5.3 x 10^-4 m^2


    2. Attempt
    This was for a lab Im doing on gas laws. Its asking to calculate exerted pressure in kPa. This is what Ive done so far :

    F= 0.908kg * 9.8m/s^2 = 8.8984N

    Pressure = Force/ Area
    Pressure= ( 8.8984N) /( 5.3 * 10^-4 m^2)

    Pressure= 16789.43396 N/ m^2

    How do I convert that to kPa?
