Lesson Worksheet: Pressure Mathematics
In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the pressure produced by a force of given intensity over a given area and converting between different pressure units.
Which of the following represents a relation between pressure, , force, , and area, ?
A metal cube with a side length of 10 cm rests on one of its faces on a desk. If the cube weighs 5,000 N, what is the pressure exerted by the cube on the desk?
Which of the following is not a unit of pressure?
A body of weight 340 N stands on the ground on its base. If it exerts a pressure of 170 Pa on the ground, find the area of the base of the body.
A metal cylinder with a base area of 0.2 m2 is resting with one of its circular faces on the ground. If it exerts a pressure of 230 Pa on the ground, what is the weight of the cylinder?
True or False: The formula, , can be used to measure the pressure produced by a force of given intensity.
If a force of 238 N is applied by a rectangle with side lengths 4 m and 6 m on a surface, find the pressure applied by the rectangle on the surface. Give your answer to the nearest hundredth.
Find the pressure of a solid box applying a force of 21 N on an area of 193 cm2. Give your answer to the nearest tenth.
A circular cylinder with base radius 4 cm applies a force of 25 N. Find the pressure applied by the circle on the surface. Give your answer to the nearest hundredth.
An object applies a force of 18 N. If the pressure applied on the surface is 0.21 N/cm2, what is the area of the base of that object? Give your answer to the nearest hundredth.
