Question

Use your ideas about pressure to explain why it is easier to walk on soft sand if you have flat shoes rather than shoes with sharp heels.

Solution

It is easier to walk on a soft sand by wearing a pair of flat shoes rather than a pair of high-heeled shoes because flat shoes have a larger surface area where the body weight of the person gets uniformly distributed and puts lesser pressure on sand, whereas heels have a smaller surface area where the weight of the body is focused on a smaller area and increases the pressure.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
