A rectangular body of dimensions ( ) is acted upon by a force of on the top surface. Calculate the pressure due to the force on that surface.
Step1: Given data
A body of dimensions ( ) is .
Step2: Formula used
The pressure is defined as the force per unit area which is perpendicular to the surface. The S.I. unit of pressure is Pascal (Pa).
Step3: Calculating pressure
Substituting the given value of force and area in the pressure formula
Hence, the pressure due to the force on that surface will be .
