MC2) D First we need his weight: (66.0 kg)(9.81 m/s2) = 647 N.
Each nail supports 589 N/1208 = 0.534 N of force. This 0.534 N is distributed over 10-6 m2 of area, so
the pressure from one nail is 0.53

We square the differences after we subtract the average from each trial because we need to have a
positive representation of the value, which means no negative numbers.
