I have one more question I desperately need help with out of the 20 we had assigned.

A mature gorilla weighs 400lb and stands 5ft tall; its 2 feet combined have an area of about 1 ft squared.

give an estimate of the gorilla weight when it was half as tall.

what assumptions are involved in your estimate?

when the gorilla is standing, what is the pressure on its feet in pounds per sq in.?

in regards to the pressure on its feet..... i have to use pressure=weight
