In my chemistry class we have been given a formula:
force/area = Newton/m^2 = kg/ms^2 = pascal
Often I find a problem given the following info and answer:
what is the pressure exerted by someone weighing 145lbs with contact area of 300 cubic cm?
Now the formula dealing with Kg (145lbs = 65.8 kg) also has time involved with it.
How do apply this eqn. to obtain an answer in pascals?
I can only apply force/area
