# 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. - CBSE Class 9 - Science

#### 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?
