1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Let's say there are two objects, Object A and Object B... -Object A weighs a little less than Object B -Object A has significantly more surface area than Object B -Both Object A and Object B are supported by identical structures What I want to know, is which object creates more force (or is it pressure?) on the structure? If the weights are given, how can I calculate this so I know which one applies more force? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution This is not a homework assignment. Just seeking the knowledge.
