What pressure can be produced with an awl if you act on the awl handle with a force of 150 N? The area of the tip of the awl is 0.1 mm2?
These tasks: F (the force with which the awl was applied to the handle) = 150 N; S (area of the tip of the awl) = 0.1 mm2 (in SI S = 0.1 * 10 ^ -6 m2).
The pressure that can be produced with the used awl is determined by the formula: P = F / S.
Let’s perform the calculation: P = 150 / (0.1 * 10 ^ -6) = 1.5 * 10 ^ 9 Pa (1.5 GPa).
Answer: The used awl can produce a pressure of 1.5 GPa.
