Deduce The Weight Of A Truck From Its Flat TiresClassical Mechanics Level 5
The acceleration due to gravity is \(-9.8~m/s^2\).
The truck's weight is distributed equally on all four tires.
Assume air is completely made up of \(O_2\) and \(N_2\). (Hint: This information is necessary for this problem.)
Atmospheric pressure at sea level is 101.325 kPa.
You may neglect any 'surface tension' of the tires.
