It's considerale even for a 12" CRT (as used in most terminals)
Assuming a 4:3 screen aspect ratio, the sides and diagonal go as a 3:4:5
triangle. So the height is 3/5*12", the width 4/5*12".
So the screen area is 3*12*4*12/(5*5) or 69.12 square inches. Atmospheric
pressure is about 14psi. So a total force on the screen of 968 or so
pounds. Since there are 2240 pounds in a ton, that['s about 0.43 of a
ton. Not inconsiderable.
