If a person weighs 160 pounds, and the surface area of the bottom of both feet combined is 200 cm2. What is the pressure under the person’s feet (unit: N/m2)? What is the pressure if the person stands on only one foot (unit: N/m2)? [Hint: 1 kg = 2.2 lbs, 1 cm = 0.01 m, 1 cm2 = 0.0001 m2]

  • physics -

    pressurebothfeet=W/area=160*1kg/2.2lbs /(.0001*200)

    compute that.
