Question

When is the pressure on the ground more—when a man is walking or when a man is standing ? Explain.

Solution

We know surface area is inversely proportional to pressure. Therefore when we stand, our body pressure is transferred equally on both the legs. Hence, the surface area increases and the pressure decrease. But when we walk, our body pressure is transferred to single leg at a time. Hence, the surface area decreases and the pressure increase. Thus, pressure is more while we walk.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
