Try multiplying all the numbers together and that might be the answer.

Seriously though, the formula for this can be found in any textbook so all you have to do is read the piece of your textbook that accompanies the exercise and then learn for yourself how to do it!

Use,
F: m*g
m= mass of cylinder,
Area of cylinder(A)=
3.142.(radius)^2.(length)
Finally,
Pressure(p)= F/A

In general to calculate fomlula is p=f/a
where
p=pressre
f=force
a=area of cylinder

Hmm..so P=F/A,....F=W=mg=(83.3)(9.8)=816.34N..Area of cyclinder=2x22/7x(0.037x0.037)+2x22/7x0.037x2.93=0.6900 m^2...P=W/A=816.34N/0.6900m^2=1183.1Pa=1.183Kpa...ty...
