The problem goes as follows: he four tires of an automobile are inflated to a gauge pressure of 1.85E+5 Pa. Each tire has an area of 0.0237 m2 in contact with the ground. Determine the weight of the automobile.

But I've applied the Pfluid = F/A and it doesn't seem to pan out. I come up with 447 N per tire, which is wrong.
