Chapter 9- Answer to problems: 2,3, 5, 8, 10, 14, 17, 34 3. What is the average pressure on the soles of the feet of a standing 90.0 - kg person due to the contact force with the floor? Each foot has a surface area of 0.020 m 2 . Given: m a = 90.0kg, t he surface area of the adult feet A=2*0.020m 2 Question: P av ? The average pressure on the 2 soles is for A=2xA foot =2x0.020m 2 P av = F/A = (90.0kg)x(9.80m/s 2 ) / 2x(0.020m 2 ) = 22 kPa 8. A nurse applies a force of 4.40 N to the pisto n of a syringe. The piston has an area of 5.00 10 –5 m 2 . What is the pressure increase in the fluid within the syringe? Given : F = 4.40N the force applied by the nurse, A=5.00x10 -3 the area the force is applied Question: p ? The pressure in crease in the fluid is p= F/A = 4.40N/(5.00x10 -5 m 2 ) = 88.0 kPa 14.How high can you suck water up a straw? The pressure in the lungs can be reduced to about 10 kPa below atmospheric pressure.Given :p= patmp =10.0kPa the pressure reductionQuestion : the height = h =-d ?

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
