boxes a and b each of mass 2 kg having dimension 20 cm to 10 cm into 8 cm and 40 cm into 30 cm and to 15 January respective at kept on a horizontal surface as shown the figure the ratio of pressure accepted by box a on the surface accepted by box be on the surface is take g 10 m per second

As the figure in question is missing.
We assume that the box, is kept as above.
Mass of box A and B = 2 kg respectively
F = m x a = mg = 2 x 10 = 20 N
Dimensions of box A = 20 cm x 10 cm x 8 cm = 0.2 m x 0.1 m x 0.08 m
Surface area of box A in contact with horizontal surface = 20 cm x 10 cm = 0.2 m x 0.1 m
Dimensions of box B = 40 cm x 30 cm x 15 cm = 0.4 m x 0.3 m x 0.15 m
Surface area of box B in contact with horizontal surface = 0.4 m x 0.3 m
Thus,
Pressure by box A, PA = 20/0.02 = 10 x 102 Pa
Pressure by box B, PB = 20/0.12 =  166 Pa
PA : PB = 1000/166.66 = 6:1

Thus, the ratio of pressure exerted by box A on box B is 6:1
