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?

• Chemistry -

1 atm = 10.1 Newtons/cm^2

to find that type

1 atm = Newtons/cm^2

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
