Expert Answer:

Pressure, P =?
M = 50 kg 
F = mass x acceleration
F = 50 x acceleration due to gravity = 50 kg x 9.8 m/s2  = 490 N 
side of cube is given  = 5 cm = 5 x 10-2 m 
Area of the face of cube on which the force is applied is A = (5 x 10-2)2m2 = 25 x 10-4 m2 
Pressure =  Force/ Area = 490 N/ 25 x 10-4 m2 = 196000 N/m2 = 196000 Pa
