# The twp thigh bones (femurs ), each of cross - sectional area 10 cm2 support the upper part of a human body of mass 40 kg. Estimate the total pressure sustained by both the femurs. ( Given g = 10 m / s2 )

Please find below the solution to your asked query.

$Pressure=\frac{force}{area}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}force=weightofthebody=mg=40\times 10=400N\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}area=2\times areaofeachbone=2\times 10\times {10}^{-4}{m}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}pressure=\frac{400}{2\times {10}^{-3}}=2\times {10}^{5}pascal$

Hope this information will clear your doubt about force and pressure.

If you have any doubt do ask on the forum our experts will help you out.
