$\overline{){\mathbf{Pressure}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{Force}}{\mathbf{Area}}}$

1 atm = 101,325 Pa

1 Pa = 1 N/m^{2}

1 cm^{2} = 0.0001 m^{2}

A force of 2.26×10^{4} N is applied to a divers face mask that has an area of 125 cm^{2} .

Find the pressure in atm on the face mask. (1 atm = 101,325 Pa)
