If the surface area of a human body is 17,500 square centimeters, what is the total weight of the atmosphere on a human body expressed in pounds?

1 atm = 10.1 Newtons/cm^2
to find that type
1 atm = Newtons/cm^2
into a Google search box
10.1 Newtons/cm^2 * 17.5*10^3 cm^2
= 177,000 Newtons
use the Google search box again:
177000 newtons = pounds
and you will get back
39,791 pounds
