# Understanding Pressure - Example 1

### Finding the force acted on a surface when the pressure and surface area are given.

Difficulty Level: 1

Example:
A force F is acting on a surface of area 20cm², produces a pressure 2500Pa on the surface. Find the magnitude of the force.

$P= F A (2500)= F 0.002 F=(2500)(0.002) F=5N$
