solve this physics problem for me a vehicle has a mass of 1200kg and four wheels of area 0.06m2 calculate pressure on one wheel
asked by
patrick

pressure = force/area = N/m^2
so, plugging in your numbers,
(1200*9.8)/(.06/4) = 784kPa
or 115 psi
If you mean each wheel is .06m^2, then divide that pressure by 4.posted by Steve
