Question

Equal amount of pressure is applied on two surfaces with different surface areas. For such a condition, which of the following statement is correct?


  1. None of the above

  2. Surface area with maximum value will experience maximum force

  3. Surface area with minimum value will experience maximum force

  4. All surface areas will experience same force.


Solution

The correct option is B

Surface area with maximum value will experience maximum force


According to formula Pressure P=Force(F)Area(A)
or F=P×A.
So, for the same amount of pressure P, if we increase the surface area A of an object, force experienced by that object is increased.
