The aqueous humor in a person’s eye is exerting a force of 0.300 N on the 1.10-cm2 area of the cornea. (a) What pressure is this in mm Hg? (b) Is this value within the normal range for pressures in the eye?
Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 5 Force per unit aria is known as pressure. Greater the force, greater the pressure if aria on which the force acts remain same. Step 2 of 5 (a) From definition of pressure, Here, is pressure, is force applied and is area perpendicular to the force. Step 3 of 5 Substitute , in the above equation.
