help anyone physics plz?
What is the gauge pressure of a basketball when you push it down with a force of 30 N, the ball flattens out, and its bottom forms a circular area with a diameter of 2.5 cm?

Assuming no resistance from the ball itself,
gauge p = F / A = 30N / [(π/4)(0.025m)²] = 6.1e4 Pa
or 61 kPa
