What is the outward force on the sidewall due to the air pressure? F = P * A We need the answer in N. So, P is in Pascals which we can figure Pa = 84 psi * 6890 Pa = 578760. A is area in meters 2 which can be done through the conversion m 2 = 1600 in 2 * 1550.0031 = 1.032256 m 2 2. A small statue is recovered in an archaeological dig.
