find the greatest and least pressure which a metal block of size 5cm*10cm *15cm can exert if the mass of block is 50 kg

Pressure is defined as force per unit area. P=F/A. Larger the area smaller would be the pressure and vice-versa.
Greatest pressure=50x10/0.05x0.1=100 kNm-2
Smallest pressure=50x10/0.10x0.15=33.3 kNm-2
