which two object have masses 20kg and 15kg are placed on a plane surface.Both have same area.Which one is the correct answer for pressure.
1)20kg mass least pressure
2)15kg mass least pressure
3)20kg mass most pressure
4)both have same pressure

• physics -

The heavier object exerts the most pressure, since the areas are the same.
