A body of dimensions (lxbxh) 2m x 3m x 4m is acted upon by a force of 50N on the top surface. Calculate the pressure due the force on that surface.

This body could be taken as a cuboid of dimensions 2m x 3m x 4m.So, 2m is the length, 3m is the breadth and 4m is the height of the body. Therefore the area of the top surface is 2m x 3m = 6m2. Thus, pressure = (frac{50}{6}) Pa
