applying a uniform load on a group of faces

I'd like to set a uniform load on a model with some separate faces (read: a load on faces with a gap between, so I'm not able to knit them)

I attached a part to clear things out.
When I set a force on separate faces, the resultant will be the force x number of faces. so when I apply a force of 100N and select 3 faces....the resultant will be 300N

one option is to measure the projected area of the faces and calculate a pressure normal to a reference plane. Apart from this method to be very time consuming, I cannot find a simple way to measure the projected area.

There must be an easier way to do this..... anyone?
