I have an assignment that asks me to create a lab that uses the two equations(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); p = density weight x height and p=F/Ain order to determine pressure in two ways resulting in the same number.

So obviously density weight is a given, so all the only variables I need to find are height, force and area. I'm supposed to be able to create a lab that I can do in our physics room.... I've tried to think of a way to use a brake rotor on s hooks to calculate force and provide an area and show a height but than I stumble on to the fact that this idea doesn't help me find pressure at all... I've been racking my brain all break and I can't seem to come up with any beginnings of ideas or a final lab that I could try. If anyone could help me find a start to an idea I'd be so thankful.

Oh I'm pretty positive I have to use a springscale but other than that I'm stuck.
