View Full Interview# Which exerts more pressure hot or cold air?

cold air exerts more pressure than hot air

# 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.

# Why does water exert more pressure than air does?

Water is more dense than air is.

# 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

# 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.

# 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

# 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 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

# 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.

# Explain how a woman weighing 500 N and wearing high-heeled shoes can exert a pressure on the floor equal to about three times the pressure exerted by a 45000-N elephant?

If she is wearing stilleto heels and all of her weight is concentrated on the small area of the heel, then the pressure per square inch can be very great. The elephant's weigh…t is distributed over 4 feet and a much larger area (Elephants have huge feet).

# What is the force exerted on the -4 C by the plus 5C charge?

-4c charge can make the exerted force go on another object such as the 5c positive charge. because wen u multiply em' they make a similarity between them such as -4c+5c which …equals to -c or -1c (same thing):)

# 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.

# Does cold air exert more pressure?

It depends on the situation. In a contained vessel (eg a tyre), then hot air would exert a higher pressure. In general outside the pressure is (fairly) constant, and it is t…he density which changes with temperature. Imagine if this weren't true; you could have two pockets of air next to each other at different temperatures, and thus also at different pressures. In reality this leads to the pressure region expanding (and so decreasing in pressure), squashing the lower pressure region (increasing its pressure). This would continue until the pressures were the same in both regions.

# Do women exert more pressure in heels or flats on the ground?

I'm pretty sure in heels because a lot of the woman's body weight is on the heel. When wearing flats the body weight is more distributed causing less pressure to be exerted.

# Which one exerting more pressure the 40 kg animal that has 4 feet or 40 kg woman wearing a high heel shoes?

The both exert the same overall pressure on the ground, However, the pressure per unit area is higher for the Woman because the area of contact with the ground is less tha…n the area of contact with the animal.
