Air pressure

The meteorological station measured the air pressure of 1060 hPa (hectopascals). In addition to measuring instruments, there is a residential house with a flat roof with dimensions of 10 m and 28 m. What pressure force in MN (meganewtons) from the air on this roof?

Correct answer:

x =  29.68 MN

Step-by-step explanation:

a=10 m b=28 m S=a b=10 28=280 m2 p=1060 hPa p2=p/10/1000=1060/10/1000=50053=0.106 MPa x=p2 S=0.106 280=29.68 MN
