np just remember Pressure = Force / Area

Force is measured in N Area in m^2

therefore NM^2

he put m^-2 i put m^2 but we all know it means the same thing, just typing it out on the keyboard is different to writin it out!

Yeah, but you wrote Nm^2, which is wrong. You either write N/m^2 or Nm^-2.

Evidently he thinks m^-2 and m^2 are the same thing though .

which is correct, just missed the slash between N and M which the guy already knew was N/M^2!
