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

    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
