__Weight to Pressure Formula:__

Pressure is a measure of force applied per unit area, It quantifies how concentrated a force is over a given area. When weight is exerted over a surface, it generates pressure. The weight of an object is the force due to gravity acting on its mass.

In this equation, a greater weight over a small area will result in higher pressure. Conversely, spreading the same weight over a larger area reduces the pressure exerted on the surface.

Pressure – the force exerted per unit area.

Weight – the force exerted by gravity on an object.

Area – the surface area over which the weight is distributed.

A heavier object (more weight) exerts a greater pressure on a surface for a given area.

A smaller contact area for the same weight results in a higher pressure.

Pressure, P_{(Pa)} in Pascals is calculated by dividing the weight, W_{(N)} in Newton by area, A_{(m2)} in square metres.

Pressure, P_{(Pa)} = W_{(N)} / A_{(m2)}

P_{(Pa)} = pressure in Pascals, Pa.

W_{(N)} = weight in Newton, N.

A_{(m2)} = area in square metres, m^{2}.

__Weight to Pressure Calculation:__

- A 588 N person stands on a platform with an area of 0.2 square metres. Calculate the pressure exerted by the person on the platform.

Given: W_{(N)} = 588N, A_{(m2)} = 0.2m^{2}.

Pressure, P_{(Pa)} = W_{(N)} / A_{(m2)}

P_{(Pa)} = 588 / 0.2

P_{(Pa)} = 2940Pa.

- A hydraulic press exerts a pressure of 3000 pascals on a piston with an area of 0.5 square metres. Calculate the weight supported by the piston.

Given: P_{(Pa)} = 3000Pa, A_{(m2)} = 0.5m^{2}.

Pressure, P_{(Pa)} = W_{(N)} / A_{(m2)}

W_{(N)} = P_{(Pa)} * A_{(m2)}

W_{(N)} = 3000 * 0.5

W_{(N)} = 1500N.
