Mini-Quiz: Pressure is Force per Unit Area

by Ron Kurtus (revised 18 March 2006)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What is the pressure on 2 square meter surface where you push with a force of 6 Newtons?

3 pounds per square inch

12 Newtons per square meter

3 Newtons per square meter

2. Why must a liquid be confined when applying a force with a solid piston?

Otherwise the liquid will just squirt out

Otherwise the liquid will turn into a solid

No one knows for sure

3. What is the pressure on the ground caused by a container of 2 pounds of water?

2 pounds per square foot

Water is a fluid that does not cause a pressure

You need to know the area of the box in the ground

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.


Be able to work under pressure
