(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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?

2. Relevant equations

I can only apply force/area

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm making mistakes as I go...I'll get back with a closer one quickly!
