Question

A box-shaped metal can has dimensions 5 in. by 19 in. by 4 in. high. All of the air inside the can is removed with a vacuum pump. Assuming normal atmospheric pressure outside the can, find the total force (in lb) on one of the 5-by-19 in. sides. (Enter the magnitude.)

    Answer:

    The force is  F  =  1397 lb

    Explanation:

    From the question we are told that

        The length of the box is  l  =  19 \ in

        The width of the box is  w =  5 \ in

         The height is  h  =  4\ in

    The pressure experience on one of the sides is mathematically represented as

         p = \frac{F}{A}

    Where A is the area of the box which is mathematically evaluated as

        A =  l * w

    substituting values

         A =  5 *19

    A = 95 \ in^2

    This pressure is equivalent to the atmospheric pressure which has a constant value of  p = 14.7 pi

    This implies that

            14.7  = \frac{F}{95}

    =>   F  =  14.7 *95

    =>    F  =  1397 lb
