## Pressure From Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pressure From Weight.

P = W / A

- Where P is the Pressure From Weight (Pa)
- W is the total weight (N)
- A is the total area (m^2)

To calculate pressure from weight, divide the weight by the total area.

## How to Calculate Pressure From Weight?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Pressure From Weight.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total weight (N). In this example, the total weight (N) is given as 200.
- Next, determine the total area (m^2). For this problem, the total area (m^2) is given as 5.
- Finally, calculate the Pressure From Weight using the equation above:

P = W / A

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation:

P = 200 / 5 = 40 (Pa)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as above, first define the variables required by the formula. In this case, these values are:

total weight (N) = 350

total area (m^2) = 6

Entering these values yields:

P = 350 / 6 = 58.333 (Pa)
