September 14, 2021 | education

| Task data: S (sail area of the yacht) = 60 m2; P (wind pressure on the sail) = 80 N / m2 (80 Pa).

The force of pressure on the sail of the yacht is calculated by the formula: F = P * S.

Let’s calculate: F = 80 * 60 = 4800 N (4.8 kN).

Answer: The wind presses on the sail of the yacht with a force of 4.8 kN.
