|we could find out exactly how hard Dr. Hunter is chomping on his foot while he types the tard he posts here? |
yes, provided you could somehow get his foot out of his mouth long enough to be able to insert a bite meter.
which of course is the real challenge.
oh, and I think those bite meters do have an upper limit of around 2000 lbs, so they might not be adequate in this case.
|Was the measurement in psi's? The video didn't make it clear |
hmm, it's my understanding it's equated to the amount of pressure a stationary object of given weight would exert.
IOW, if it states "1000 lbs." that would equate to a solid weight of 1000 lbs being placed on the meter.
I'm sure the pressure meter actually measures it directly as PSI, which is then translated into a measure that is easier for pop. science buffs to translate into real-world examples.
so when someone says 1000 lbs of pressure, it allows comparison between parking a VW on the meter, for example.
It's legit enough, if not the most accurate representation.
