Pressure – Stick notes in your book
What pressure is the force per unit area exerted by an object on a surface with which it is in contact with. How to calculate it Pressure = Force / Area P = F / A Units N / m2 Special unit the pascal Pa 1000 Pa = 1kPa kilopascal

Exercise 1: words to use surface area , weight , pressure, sink
Why do tractors have such large wheels? Why do camels have such large feet? The large wheels have a large surface area in contact with the ground. Tractors have a large weight (force) and often have to work on soft ground like mud and soil. The large area of the tyres means that they put less pressure on the ground and they are therefore less likely to sink. Camels are often found in deserts. The camels have a large weight (force) The large surface area of their feet on the ground means that they put less pressure on the sand and are less likely to sink into the sand. Camels have large feet

greater area pressure force smaller
Exercise 2: Pressure Pressure tells us over what sort of area a _____ is acting. Pressure depends upon two factors: the force that is being applied and the ____ over which the force is acting. The larger the force, the greater the ________. The ______ the force, the lower the pressure. The smaller the area, the _______ the pressure. The larger the area, the smaller the pressure. force area pressure smaller greater greater area pressure force smaller

Pressure Formula The pressure formula allows you to calculate the pressure, force or area for a problem given two of the factors. Pressure measured in Pascals (Pa). Pressure = Force Area Force measured in Newtons (N). Area measured in metres squared (m2). 1 Pa = 1 N/m² Example A force of 10 N acts over an area of 2 m2. What pressure is created by the force? Pressure = Force ÷ Area Pressure = 10 ÷ 2 Pa Pressure = 5 Pa or 5 N/m2

Pressure formula and triangle
Pressure = Force / Area P = F / A Units N / m2 special unit the pascal Pa

Exercise 3: Hammer and Nail
A hammer is used to drive a nail into a wooden floor. The hammer is brought down with a force of 200 N. The area of the top of the nail is 0.5 cm2. What pressure is put upon the top of the nail by the hammer blow? Pressure = Force ÷ Area Pressure = 200 N ÷ 0.5 cm2 Pressure = 400 N/cm2

Exercise 4: Pressure Calculations 1
What are the units of pressure, force and area? A force of 500 N acts over an area of 10 m2. What pressure is created by this force? A girl of weight 400 N has feet of area 100 cm2. What pressure does she put on the ground? A car of weight N has four wheels. Each wheel has an area of 80 cm2. What pressure does the car put on the ground? Pressure measured in Pascals. Force measured in Newtons. Area measured in metres squared. 50 Pa. 4 N/cm2. 20 N/cm2.

Exercise 5: Pressure Calculations 2 – Pressure worksheet
A force of 300 N creates a pressure of 4 N/m2. Over what area is the force acting? A pressure of 200 Pa is created over an area of 5 m2. What force acts to create this pressure? A tractor has tyres of area 3 m2. It has a weight of N. What pressure does the tractor put on the ground? A truck has tyres of area 5 m2. It puts a pressure of N/m2 on the road. What is the weight of the truck? 75 m2. 1 000 N. 4 000 Pa. N.

Large Force - Large surface area – lower pressure
Large force - weight and large surface area of balloon tyres - means less pressure this works most of the time but sometimes the mud is just to bad. Meanwhile in Siberia, Russia Federation ..\..\..\Videos\Balloon Tyres Have Greater Surface Area.flv

Fluid Pressure The pressure in SOLIDS always acts DOWNWARDS because of the PULL of GRAVITY. In FLUIDS (LIQUIDS and GASES) the pressure acts IN ALL DIRECTIONS. Pressure in fluids can be used to TRANSFER FORCES. Also, in fluids, the PRESSURE INCREASES WITH DEPTH. Less pressure DAMS are WIDER AT THE BOTTOM than at the top because pressure increases with depth in water. Higher pressure

acts in all directions it increases with depth it depends on the density of the liquid it is the same at any depth, it does not depend on the shape or width of the container Demo

Pressure in Liquid To calculate the pressure at a depth h and a density ρ Volume of liquid = base area x depth = Ah Mass of liquid = density x volume = ρ Ah Weight of liquid = mass x g = ρ g Ah g = 10 N/kg Force on base = ρ g Ah This force is acting on area A Pressure = force / area = ρ g Ah = ρ g h A

Pressure in water equation
Pressure = density x gravitational field strength x depth p= ρ g h Pa ρ = density kg/m3 g = gravitational field strength g= N/kg h= depth – height of water – deep m

Pressure in a liquid p= ρ g h ρ = 1000 g=10 h = 2
If the density of water is 1000kg/m3,what is the pressure due to the water at the bottom of a swimming pool 2m deep? p= ρ g h ρ = g=10 h = 2

Pressure in Liquid This equation allows us to calculate the pressure at any point below the surface of a liquid due to the liquid alone. To determine the total pressure at this point, we must add on the pressure value at the water surface which is due to the atmosphere (so is called atmospheric pressure). Atmospheric pressure varies slightly over the earth's surface and changes due to weather conditions – The value used for calculations is Pa = 1.0 x 105 Pa

Copy this Total Pressure in liquids
= Water pressure + atmospheric pressure p= ρ g h Pa Pa Atmospheric pressure is Pa 1 x 105 Pa Atmospheric pressure varies slightly over the earth's surface and changes due to weather conditions

Diver question Example
Calculate the pressure due to water (density = kg m-3) at a point 20 m below the water surface. (b) Calculate the actual pressure a diver would experience if she was at this point. Atmospheric pressure = Pa = 1.0 x 105 Pa

Questions Please do question 1 – 2 Exam questions….. Remember about atmospheric pressure

Air Pressure Air pressure is usually N/m2. The can contains air particles and is also surrounded by air particles. They are hitting the sides of the container on the inside and the outside. The vacuum pump removes the air particles from inside the can. The pressure caused by the particles on the outside collapses the can.

Manometer A mercury barometer can be made by filling a long glass tube with mercury, and then turning it upside down in a bowl of mercury. The mercury is held up by air pressure. As the air pressure varies every day (depending on the weather), the height of the mercury varies. The height of the mercury can be used to predict the weather. The height of the mercury is usually 760mm and this is called Standard Atmospheric pressure (written 760mm Hg). Show Barometer - aneroid barometer

Rotating Forces If an object is fixed at one end and a force is applied then the object will rotate around the fixed end. We call this fixed end the PIVOT. Which factors govern the TURNING EFFECT of a force? The SIZE of the FORCE (F). The LARGER THE FORCE, the GREATER THE TURNING EFFECT. The DISTANCE (d) of the force from the pivot. The GREATER THE DISTANCE of the FORCE FROM THE PIVOT, the GREATER THE TURNING EFFECT. We call the turning effect of a force the MOMENT of the force. d F Turning effect

CLOCKWISE MOMENTS = ANTICLOCKWISE MOMENTS
