Saturday’s smiles

Newton, Pascal and Archimedes are playing hide and seek.

Archimedes starts to count, Pascal hides in a bush, and Newton draws a square on the ground and steps into it.

Archimedes finds Newton first, of course, but Newton replies, “Nope. One Newton on one square meter is equal to one Pascal.”

An interesting aspect to humour is that I don’t understand the science but I still get the joke.

    pdm you will have seen the kPa symbol when pumping up your tyres. That’s kilo pascals which is a unit of pressure. A Pascal is one newton of force on one square metre.
