The heels on a pair of women's shoes have a radius of 5 cm at the bottom. if 30% of the weight of a woman 480N is supported by each heel, find the stress on each hee.

  • physics -

    .3 * 480 N = force on a heel

    area of heel = pi (.05)^2

    compressive stress = force/area

    in Newtons/meter^2 which is Pascals

    I am assuming the heel is round and not for example semicircular.
