**Hint**

Pressure is a force applied perpendicularly over an area. The unit for pressure is a pascal (Pa).

$$$Pressure=\frac{Force}{Area}$$$

**Hint 2**

A pascal is:

$$$1\:Pa=1\:\frac{N}{m^2}$$$

where
$$N$$
is newton, and
$$m$$
is meter.

Pressure is a force applied perpendicularly over an area. The unit for pressure is a pascal (Pa), which is one newton (N) per square meter.

$$$1\:Pa=1\:\frac{N}{m^2}$$$

A newton is a unit of force, which is described in the following SI base units:

$$$\frac{m\cdot kg}{s^{2}}$$$

Combining all units together:

$$$Pa=\frac{N}{m^2}=\frac{kg}{m\cdot s^2}$$$

$$$\frac{kg}{m\cdot s^2}$$$
