Slide 1

Learning Outcomes

know that pressure depends on both force and area.

I can calculate the pressure under any object.

Slide 2

Slide 3

SAND

100g

I think the bigger mass will sink further

I think a bigger area will stop the mass sinking

Slide 4

Pressure

Pressure is the amount of force applied to a known area.

We can calculate it using the equation

Pressure = Force (N) / Area (m2)

We can reduce pressure by reducing the size of the

force or increasing the size of the area.
