View Full Interview# Why is there more pressure under a woman's stiletto high heel shoe than an elephants foot?

Pressure is exactly equal to force divided by surface area. If that fact is true it is because the whole elephants weight (force) is spread out over four feet of relatively la…rge surface area. A womans weight is only on her two (smaller) feet. If she leans on the back of her high heels all the weight (force) shifts to the tiny points of the stillettos. To find out how much more pressure is on the stillettos, just take the weight divided by the approximate surface area of the high heel. But since elephants weigh up to 13000 pounds, about 100 times what a woman weighs the heels would need to be (since only two heels to an elephants 4 feet) about 50 times smaller than an elephants foot to get equal pressure so it seems possible.

# How does the amount of pressure you exert on the floor when you are laying down compare with the amount of pressure you exert when you are standing up?

Pressure is the force exerted on an area divided by that area. When you stand or lie down the force you exert is your weight. So when you lie down the force of your weight is …spread out over a larger area then when you stand up and the pressure will be less when lying down. I would estimate standing up produces about 6 times more pressure as laying down.

# Why does water exert more pressure than air does?

Water is more dense than air is.

# How does the amount of pressure you exert on the floor compare with the amount of pressure standing up?

You exert less pressure lying down. When you lie down, you spread the force of your weight over a larger area, thus exerting less pressure.

# Who exerts more pressure on the ground a 50 kg woman standing in high heels or a 50 kg woman standing in work boots?

I would think that the woman in high heels would exert more pressure per square inch. All that 50 kg of weight is concentrated onto the small heels of the high heels, whereas …with the boots it's spread out around the area of the boots, which significantly lowers the pressure. Put another way, if you go out and try to walk on extremely crunchy snow with the boots, they act like a pair of liferafts on water, in a sense, or at least for a second or two. With the heels, they sink right through the snow.

# What is exerting pressure?

Force exerts pressure. For example:At the surface of the Earth the column of air in the atmosphere above an area has a mass that exerts a force (due to gravity) on that surfac…e area.

# Does mercury exert more pressure than water?

mercury exerts more pressure than water bcause mercury is a metal and water is a non metal obviously mercury weighs more than water

# Which exerts more pressure hot or cold air?

cold air exerts more pressure than hot air

# Who exerts more pressure on the ground a 500N woman standing in 0.005m high heels or a 500N woman standing in 0.05m work boots?

a women who wears a 500n while standing in 0.5m work boots.

# What is the pressure exerted by a man standing on one leg?

The pressure exerted by a man standing on one leg is twice the pressure he exerts when standing on two legs

# Who exerts more pressure on the ground a 50kg woman standing in high heels or a 50kg woman standing in work boots?

heels bc everything is going into this one little heel but your boots support everything

# How does the amount of pressure you exert on the floor when you are lying down compare with the amount of pressure you exert when you're standing up?

Since your weight remains constant, the only variable is the area. Pressure is the ratio of Force to Area, implying that the larger the area the smaller the pressure and vice …versa. Since lying down translate into occupying a larger area than when standing up, a lower pressure is exerted on the floor while lying compared to when standing on the floor.

# Who exerts more pressure on the ground a women standing in running shoes a women standing in skis or a women standing in high heel shoes?

assuming they all weigh the same, they would be equal. if not, the heavier one would be exerting more pressure on the ground. if you are looking for an answer relating to pres…sure exerted in a specific spot, calculate it by surface area.

# What were spikes attached to rider's heels?

They were called spurs.
