It is much easier to burst an inflated balloon with a needle than by a finger. Explain.
Answer:
When we prick the surface of an inflated balloon with a needle it exerts a larger pressure because it has a smaller area of contact compared to the finger. The large pressure pieces the surface of the balloon easily.
