A force of 5 N is applied on a body over a surface area of 5 m2. Calculate the pressure applied on the surface.
A sharp knife cuts better than a blunt knife. Which of the following is the correct reason for this?
- A sharp knife has more surface area and hence applies more pressure
- A sharp knife has smaller contact surface and hence applies more pressure
A sharp knife is costlier than a blunt knife
Sharp knives are usually made of silver which has more strength
