Question

A box-shaped metal can has dimensions 6 in by 2 in by 12 in high. All of the air inside the can is removed with a vacuum pump. Assuming normal atmospheric pressure outside the can.

a. Find the total force on one of the 6 in by 12 in sides.

b. Find the gauge pressure at the bottom of a swimming pool that is 17 feet deep.

## Answers ( )

Answer:a) The total force is 4659.8 N

b) The gauge pressure is 50764 Pa

Explanation:Given:

Pressure inside = 0

Patm = pressure outside = 1.013×10⁵Pa

Pressure difference = ΔP = 1.013×10⁵ – 0 = 1.013×10⁵Pa

a) The area is equal:

The force is:

b) The gauge pressure at the bottom is equal:

Where:

ρ = density = 1000 kg/m³

h = 17 ft = 5.18 m

Replacing:
