Best Answer

Force = Area*Pressure

1 Pascal = 1 N/m^2

1500N = Area*500Pa

Area = 1500N/500Pa = 3m^2

What is the area of a 1500 N object that exerts a pressure of 500 Na?

Pressure equals force/area so from this you can get area equals force/pressure. plug in your numbers and get an area of 3. I'll let you work out the units

Calculate the area of a 1500n object that exerts a pressure of 500pathen calculate the pressure exerted by the same object over twice that area?


How can you reduce the pressure an object exerts on the ground?

By increasing the area of cross section in contact with the ground

What is exerting pressure?

Force exerts pressure. For example: At the surface of the Earth the column of air in the atmosphere above an area has a mass that exerts a force (due to gravity) on that surface area.

When Force divided by the area over which the force is exerts pressure?

yes, force divided by area is pressure; its units are pounds per square inch, or newtons per square meter, for example. I you pull on an object with force over an area it is called stress

What is the weight of an object that has a base which is 3 cm on each side and which exerts a pressure of 21 Pa?

If the object is a square with sides of 3cm then the area is 0.0009 square metres.We assume the pressure was measured on Earth's surface.Weight (Newtons) = Pressure*area = (21 N/m2)*0.0009 m2 = 0.0189 Newtons.

Is it true that pressure is defined as the force one object exerts on another object?

Pressure is defined as a force per unit area directed normal to the surface.Pressure is not defined in terms of the force one object exerts on another object, but such a circumstance that certainly is an example of a pressure.Caveat: Admittedly, one could argue as to how any force could be exerted on an object if it were not in contact with another, but such is too limited an idea for a definition. One would have difficulty characterizing pressure in the depths of the ocean if one had to identify what objects were in contact. One must further note that pressure is not a vector whereas force is a vector.

Is the pressure exerted by a brick on its side or end more or less?

It is if a brick rests on a table the force with which the brick pushes on the table is its weight. The pressure it exerts on the contact area depends on the brick's orientation. If the contact area between brick and table is larger, the brick exerts less pressure on the contact area.

How do you find the mass of an object when the pressure and area is given?

Mass = Pressure*Area

When the force applied on an object is doubled how does the pressure applied on an object change?

It will be double, if the area is unchanged. pressure=Force/area

Which exerts more pressure on the ground an empty cardboard box or the same piece of carboard after it has been flatened for recycling and why?

the empty cardboard box because pressure decreases with increase in area of surface. pressure = force / area. thus pressure is indirectly proportional to area...

How will the pressure of an object change if area is doubled?

It won't. The pressure within a hollow object may change if the surface area changes, hence the volume. The total pressure acting on the exterior of a solid object may change if the total surface area changes.
