Example 3
: The diagram below shows a wooden block of dimensions 8 cm × 10 cm × 12cm. Its weight is 12 N. On which side should the wooden block be placed to produce amaximum pressure exerted on the table. What is value of this pressure ?P == 12 / (0.08)(0.10)=…………….
Application of Pressure
1.Tools like knives, chisels, axes and saws have sharp cutting edges. The surface area of contact is…….. When a force is applied on the tool, the small area of contact will producea……..pressure to cut the material.2.The flat base of each metal pole of a tent has a……surface area to………………..the  pressure exerted on the ground. The poles will not sink into the ground because of the flat bases.
Exercise 3.1
1.A table of mass 50kg has 4 legs is placed on a floor. Each legs has a cross sectional area of 25cm

) :Solution:
Pressure, P=F/A=mg/A=50 x 10 / (4 x 25 x 10

2.The diagram below shows a concrete block of dimension 1.5m x 2.0m x 3.0m. Its weight is60N. Calculate (a)maximum pressure, (b)minimum pressure:a)maximum pressureSolution:
P = F/A=Weight / Minimum Area=60N / (2.0 x 1.5)m

b)minimum pressure
P = F/A=Weight / Maximum Area=60N / (2.0 x 3.0)m
