10)The wing of an airplane has an average cross-sectional area of 13 m2and experiences a lift force of 96,000 N. What is the average difference in the air pressure (in N/m2) between the top and bottom of the wing?
11)Describe the four phases of matter. Compare their external, observable properties.
12)Why is it that a person can lay still on a "bed" of nails without suffering any serious injuries but would incur severe puncture wounds to his feet if he tried to stand barefoot on the same "bed"?

(a) Would the weight density of water be different on the Moon than it is on Earth?
(b)
What about the mass density?

The pressure in the air along the upper surface of an aircraft's wing (in flight) is
lower than the pressure along the lower surface. Compare the speed of the air
flowing over the wing to that of the air flowing under the wing.
