## Homework Statement

6. A person weighing 900 N is standing on snowshoes. Each snowshoe has an area of 2500 cm2. Find the pressure on the snow.

a. 0.18 Pa

b. 0.36 Pa

c. 1800 Pa

d. 3600 Pa

## Homework Equations

P=F/A

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried doing F/(2*(A))

A=2500cm

^{2}/100

^{2}cm

^{2}*1m

^{2}=.25

P=900/(2+.25)

P=1800

but the answer key says it it .18 instead
