Answer:

Explanation:

The pressure is the ratio of force per unit area

The force must be perpendicular to the area

Pressure = Force/Area

Then,

Given that,

Force F = 6.53 N

Dimensions of the sides

Length = 0.111m

Breadth = 0.221m

Then, the area of a rectangle is given as

Area = Lenght × Breadth

Area = 0.111×0.221

Area = 0.024531 m²

Then,

P = F/A

P = 6.53 / 0.024531

P = 266.19 N/m²
