Homework Help: Can someone help me with this?

  1. Sep 10, 2007 #1
    hello, would someone be able to explain to me how you can express this problem in N/cm^2 and also in psi if possible: Atmospheric pressure is 1.01 x 10 to the power of 5 Pa.
    thanks alot!

    1 Pascal (Pa) = 1 N/m^2 = 1 N/(100 cm)^2.

    A chart comparing various pressure units can be found here: Pressure Units (Wiki)
