# Pressure problem but without given values. How?

## Homework Statement

Suppose you are standing directly behind someone who steps back and accidentally stomps on your foot with the heel of one shoe. Would you be better of if that person were:

## Homework Equations

a.) a male basketball player wearing sneakers or
b.) a woman wearing heel shoes

## The Attempt at a Solution

suppose they exert the same force, but of course they have different pressure and area, and I already conclude that the woman wearing heel shoes will exert more pressure since less area=more pressure. but how can i prove it mathematically?

THANKS!

You just did.

P = F/A

If: Aheel < Asneakers

Then: F/Aheel > F/Asneakers

Just thinking laterally...
