#### Question

A pressure of 10 Pa acts on an area of 3.0 m^{2}. What is the force acting on the area ? What force will be exerted by the application of same pressure if the area is made one-third ?

#### Solution

Area = 3 m^{2}

Pressure = 10 Pa

Force = ?

`"Pressure" = "Force"/"Area"`

Pressure × Area = Force

10 × 3 = Force

30 N = Force**Answer: Force = 30 N.**

If the area is made one-third, then

Area = 3 m^{2} (1/3 of 3 m^{2}) = 1 m^{2}

Pressure = 10 Pa

Force = ?

`"Pressure" = "Force"/"Area"`

Pressure × Area = Force

10 × 1 = Force

10 N = Force**Answer: Force =10 N.**
