• # question_answer 21) Pressure is determined as force per unit area of the surface. The S.I. unit of pressure, pascal is as shown below: $1\,Pa=1N{{m}^{-2}}$ If mass of air at sea level is 1034 g$c{{m}^{-2}}$, calculate the pressure in pascal.

Pressure = Weight per unit area (weight = m x g) $=\frac{1034}{1c{{m}^{2}}}\times 9.8m{{s}^{-2}}$ $=\frac{1034\times 9.8m{{s}^{-1}}}{1c{{m}^{2}}}\times \frac{1kg}{1000g}\times \frac{100cm}{1\,m}\times$ $\frac{\text{lN}}{\text{kg}\,\text{m}{{\text{s}}^{\text{-2}}}}\times \frac{\text{lpa}}{\text{lN}{{\text{m}}^{\text{-2}}}}$ $=1.01332\times {{10}^{5}}Pa$
