I'm having difficulty with the part b.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: A stack of lead bricks measures 2.00m by 3.00m by 4.00m

a) Find the mass of the bricks.

b) Find the maximum and minimum possible pressures on the floor under the bricks in Pa and atm.

a)

A = 2m(3m)(4m)

A = 24m^3

mass = V(D)

Weight Density of lead = 11,340 kg/m^3

m = 24m^3(11,340 kg/m^3)

m = 272,160 kg.

b).....I'm thrown off by figuring minimum and maximum. Do I start with

P = F/A ??
