S CIENCE 8 P RESSURE C ALCULATIONS W ORKSHEET N AME : 1)A football player is tackled by another player and lands with the combined weight of both players on his knee. If the combined weight of the players is 2400 N and the player’s knee measures 0.1 m by 0.1 m, how much pressure is exerted on the turf when the player lands on his knee? 2)A forestry worker accidentally strikes a pipe with the end of a pickaxe while trying to dig a hole. If the pickaxe strikes with a force of 2000 N and the end of the pickaxe measures 0.02 m by 0.01 m, how much pressure is exerted on the pipe by the pickaxe? 3)A skateboarder lands on all four wheels after riding a railing. If the skateboarder has a weight of 900 N and the area on the bottom of a single wheel is 0.0001 m2, what pressure does the skateboard put on the ground? 4)Calculate the pressure for the following situation: 5)A swordfish jumps out of the water and the tip of its pointy upper jaw strikes a wooden wall of a fishing boat with 7500 N of force. If the tip of the pointy jaw has an area of 0.0004 m
