PhysicsQ&A LibraryBecause we grew up in a pressurized system, our bodies have developed so that all pressures interior to our body are relatively close to atmospheric pressure. With small pressure differentials, we have a difficult time gauging the magnitude of atmospheric pressure Consider a person lying on his stomach, with sheets of paper stacked on his back. If each sheet of paper has a mass of 3.500 g and is the standard letter size (8.5" x11"), how many sheets would stack to produce a pressure on his back equal to atmospheric pressure (roughly 101325 Pa)?Question
