Of Force and Pressure

I, for some reason, am still stuck on Newton. (To see my other Newtonian writings, please read the post immediately preceding this one. Please)

Newton and Pascal are related. I recently found out. Got a mail regarding this. It seems, Newton actually becomes Pascal!!!!

Thankfully, instead of leaving me all confused, the same mail also had an explanation for how this transformation happens. It's quite a passable one at that.

Pressure = Force per unit area
1 Pascal = 1 Newton/m^2
Hence the proof.

Don't kill me. I don't deserve that.
