First find the area. Area is defined as length multiplied by width: $\displaystyle A=lw$ $\displaystyle A=16\cdot 12$ $\displaystyle A=192 $ Pressure per square meter means: $\displaystyle \frac {P}{A}=\frac {24,000}{192}=125 N/m^2$
Just to let y'all know, the unit for Newtons is N not n. The unit is named in honor of a person, so it gets capitalized. -Dan
