**Question**

**An actress of mass 50 Kg is wearing sharp-heeled shoes. If the area of one heel is 1 cm ^{2}, Calculate the pressure exerted on the ground when she stands on just one heel (g = 10 m/s^{2}) [Ans. 5 × 10^{6} Pa] **

**Answer**

Mass (m) = 50 Kg

Area (A) = 1 cm^{2} = 10^{-4} m^{2}

**Step 1: Calculation of Force**

Force (F) = Mass (m) × g

= 50 × 10 = 500 N

**Step 2: Calculation of Pressure**

Pressure (P) = Force\over Area

= 500\over 10^{-4}

= 5 × 10^{6} Pascal
