Question

The same amount of pressure is applied on two different objects with different surface area. In this scenario which of the following statements is correct.

A.both the surface experience the same Force .

b.the surface having more surface area experiences more force.

c.the surface having less surface area experiences more force

d.force is zero in both cases


Solution

The Equation For Pressure = Force/Area

Force = Pressure × Area

So from This equation When area Increases Value Of Force Increases. And as Area Decreases Force Decreases (Since Area A is in the Denominator) 

In Question it is said that same Pressure is Applied for Both

From the equation
So as Area Increases Force Increses.

So Option (b)
