Transcripts - pressure & application
The force applied on a surface in a
direction perpendicular to the
= Newton (N)
The effect of thrust per unit area is
Unit – Pascal (Pa)
1 Pa = 1 N / 1m2
Pressure depends on two
1.force(thrust)-more force more
2.area -more area less pressure
“The same force produces less
pressure if it acts on a large
area but can produce less
pressure if acts on a small
Every day observation
1.School bags have wide straps so the
weight of bag may fall over a large area of
the shoulder of the student producing less
pressure on shoulder.
Sharp knife cuts better than a
blunt knife so the force of our
hand falls over a very small area
of object produces large pressure.
The tractor have broad tyres
so there is less pressure on ground
and do not sinking to
comparatively soft field.
It is easier to walk on soft
sand if we have flat shoes
rather than shoes with sharp
The foundations of buildings
and dams are laid on a larger
area to produce less pressure
>The wooden or concrete sleepers are kept
