Best Answer

Pressure = force/area

P1 = 18N/9m2 = 2 N/m2 or 2 Pa

P2 = 32N/16m2 = 2 N/m2 or 2 Pa

P1 = P2, the pressures are the same.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How force is different from pressure?

Pressure is force divide by unit area. Thus, if you have an air pressure of 100,000 Pascal, that means you have a force of 100,000 newton over an area of 1 square meter. It also means there is a force of 200,000 newton over an area of 2 square meters, a million newton over an area of 10 square meters, etc.

What is the relationship between force area and pressure?

pressure = force / area Therefore pressure and force are directly proportional, meaning... The greater the force the greater the pressure and the lower the force the lower the pressure

Effect of force and area to pressure?

Pressure is Force divided by Area (P=F/A), hence kgf/cm2 or pounds per square inch as the unit for pressure. The greater the force or the lower the area, the higher the pressure.

A force of 20 N is applied over 5 square meters so what would the pressure be?

What equals force exerted on a surface divided by the total area over which the force is exerted?

That is called pressure. For example, the SI unit for pressure is the Pascal, which is equal to newtons / square meters.

What is the pressure per square meter on a table that is 9 square meters and is under 18N of force?

18N / 9 sq m = 2 N/square meter

What is the force exterted on a surface divideed by the total area over which the force is exerted?

The force exerted on a surface divided by the total area over which the force is exerted is the pressure. Pressure = Force / Area Pascals = Newtons/ square meters Pa = N/m^2 or psi = lb/in^2 (pounds per square inch)

How does force and surface area affect pressure on an object?

pressure is force divided by area, so the greater the area the less the pressure for a given force

What force acting on an area of 0.5 meter will produce a pressure of 500 pascal?

0.5 meter is not an area, that's a length. In general, the relation is: pressure (in pascal) is force (in newton) divided by area (in square meters).

What is equal to 1 newton per square meter?

Newton per m2 is equal to a Pascal Pascal's are a unit of pressure. If you think about it, the newton is force and the meters squared is area. Pressure is the measure of force per area.

What is a Pascal in terms of Newtons and square meters?

Exactly the right question! 1 pascal of pressure is equivalent to 1 newton of force over 1 square meter of area.
