### How do you find out stress from force?

stress is force divided by area. If you have a force of 10 acting over area 1 stress is 10 ; if area is 2 stress is 5, etc. Force has units of pounds or newtons and stress is pounds per square inch or newtons per square meter

### How much is 1000 newtons in pounds?

to weigh 1000 newtons the object would have to weigh the equivalent of 100kg Comes from F = ma Force = 1000 newtons = mass x acceleration acceleration = gravity = 10 m/s^2 So Force/acc. = mass = 100 kg

### Why is it hard to steer a bike whilst holding the center?

If you exert a force of 100 newtons , and your hands are 10cm (0.1m) from the pivot(the center of the handlebars, the formula is force(100)xPerpendicular distance (0.1) the force would be 10 newtons , but if you increased the distance your hands are from the center (e.g. to 50cm away) the force would be 50 newtons , So, the greater the distance from the center , the greater the turning force (moment).
