    Answer:

    15.00124mmHg

    Explanation:

    Pressure is defined as the ratio of force applied to an object to its area.

    Pressure = Force/Area

    Given parameters

    Force = 0.242N

    Area = 1.21cm²

    Required parameters

    Pressure = 0.242/1.21

    Pressure = 0.2N/cm²

    Using the conversion to convert the pressure to mmHg

    1N/cm² = 75.0062mmHg

    0.2N/cm² = y

    y = 0.2 * 75.0062

    y = 15.00124mmHg

    Hence the pressure in mmHg is 15.00124mmHg
