Calculate skin surface area

00 hours 30 mins

Our skin insulates us, keeps us cool, holds our organs in, and is the body’s largest and fastest growing organ. It also protects us from an unfathomable number of collisions each second caused by air molecules air pushes on our skin and our skin pushes back. In this activity, you’ll suss out the approximate surface area of your skin and the amount of atmospheric force pushing on it. 


Have fun in exploring surface area of human skin and the amount of pressure it is subjected to it.
