A brick is kept in three different ways on a table as shown in Fig.
11.5. The pressure exerted by the brick on the table will be
A. maximum in position A
B. maximum in position B
C. maximum in position C
D. equal in all cases.
The smaller the area, larger the pressure on a surface for the same force. Hence, the brick A whose area of contact is minimum will exert more pressure on the table.
