Please can one of you brainy people out there help me. I need to work out the force to open a door when there is a 60pascal pressure acting against it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The size of the door is 1000mm wide x 2000mm high.

The differential Pressure is 60 pascals

The handle is 70mm away from the leading edge of the door.

Ideally I need the calculation so I do the calc myself on future projects.

I did find the attached documents, just not fully sure what figures to use where.

Any help would be much appreciated.
