Unformatted text preview: Examples we have encountered so far are: Force: 1 N = 1 kg m/s 2 ; This comes from Newton's 2 nd Law which can be expressed as: F (net) = m a. Pressure: 1 Pa = 1 N / m 2 ; This comes from the definition of pressure as being the force exerted on an object divided by the area over which the force is applied. (That is, P = F/A where A = area with units of m 2 .) For units of force and weight, we have seen pounds. 1 newton EQUALS .22 pounds. 1 kilogram WEIGHS 2.2 pounds. (You will not have to memorize these relationships.)...
