A 73.5 kg person sits on a 3.20 kg chair. Each leg of the chair makes contact with the floor in a circle that is 1.74 cm in diameter. Calculate the pressure exerted on the floor by each leg of the chair, assuming the weight is evenly distributed.

  • Physics please help!! -

    find the total weight, mg. Divide it by 4, for each leg force. Next, find the area of each contact point (PI(d/2)^2). change d to meters first.

    Then, pressure= forceeachleg/areaeachleg
