| **Withstands a pressure of 2.6 kPa, a skier is moving through the snow. length of each ski 1.95 width 6 cm. What is the maximum permissible weight of a skier?**

P = 2.6 kPa = 2600 Pa.

l = 1.95 m.

a = 6 cm = 0.06 m.

g = 9.8 m / s ^ 2.

m -?

Pressure P is determined by the formula: P = F / S, where F is the force, S is the area on which this force acts.

The gravity force F = m * g acts on the skier.

The area of action of gravity will be the area of contact of two skis with the snow: S = 2 * l * a.

P = m * g / 2 * l * a.

m = 2 * l * a * P / g.

m = 2 * 1.95 m * 0.06 m * 2600 Pa / 9.8 m / s ^ 2 = 62 kg.

Answer: the maximum permissible mass of a skier m = 62 kg with a larger mass of skis will fall through the snow.
