Help with solve block - errors

I already defined the solve block variables but mathcad is still giving me an error that shows that the variable/equations are undefined.

Can anyone help me find the error here so I can find variable P?

Thanks!

You first need to fix a units problem. Mathcad insists P has units of force, in which case sigma(P) has units of pressure. It therefore cannot be equated to sigma[n, which has units of force.
