The 60 kN tractor has a supporting area of both tracks of 1.5 m2. What is the ground pressure of the tractor?

To find the value of the pressure of a given tractor on the ground, we will use the formula: P = Ft / S = Pt / S.
Values of variables: Pt – tractor weight (Pt = 60 kN = 60 * 10 ^ 3 N); S is the reference area of the tracks (S = 1.5 m2).
Calculation: P = Pt / S = 60 * 10 ^ 3 / 1.5 = 40,000 Pa (40 kPa).
Answer: D. The pressure of a given tractor on the ground is 40,000 Pa.
