From the condition, we know the following values – the surface area is 100 cm ^ 2 and the force that acts on this surface is 100 N.
Let’s write down briefly given:
S = 100 cm ^ 2 = 0.01 m ^ 2;
F = 100 N.
p (pressure acting on the surface) -?
Let’s apply the formula for calculating the pressure of solids:
p = F / S,
where S is the support area,
F – pressure force (N).
We know all the values from the problem statement and the area is converted to SI. It remains to substitute the values and calculate:
p = 100 / 0.01 = 10,000 Pa = 10 kPa.
