Physics

The four tires of an automobile are inflated to an absolute pressure of 2.0*10^5 Pa. Each tire has an area of 0.024m^2 in contact with the ground. Determine the weight of the automobile.

Pressure*area= force. There are four tires.

  2. pressure = force / area
    force = pressure * area
    multiply by four because there are four tires so
    force = pressure * area * 4
    force = (2.0*10^5 Pa) * (0.024m^2) * 4
    force (weight) = 19200N or 1.9*10^4N
