1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You have a vehicle with four tires of 20 cm wide with 2 atm air pressure. Calculate

contact area (cm^2) of each tire on the road. The gross vehicle weight is 1 tonne.

2. Relevant equations

P=F/A

P=ρgh

3. The attempt at a solution

F=mg=1x10^6x9.8=9.8x10^6

A=F/P

therefore, A=(9.8x10^6)/200000=49m^2

I am not sure if I am right so far,

can u assist me if I am incorreect

cheers
