A girl stands on a box having in length, in breadth, and in height in three ways. In which of the following cases, the pressure exerted by the girl will be
Maximum when breadth and height form the base
Step 1: Given
Step 2: To find
The pressure exerted by the girl will be
Step 3: Solution
Pressure is defined as the ratio of force to cross section area
So, according to the formula pressure is maximum, when the area is minimum
The area formed by length and breadth
The area formed by length and height
The area formed by breadth and height
So the minimum area is when the base is formed by breadth and height, hence pressure will be maximum in this case..
Hence, the correct option is .
