    Answer:

    the pressure exerted at the base of the container is 490 N/m²

    Explanation:

    Given;

    density of water, ρ = 1,000 kg/m³

    base of the rectangular container, = 50 cm by 30 cm

    height of water in the tank, h = 5 cm = 0.05 m

    The pressure exerted at the base of the container is calculated as;

    P = ρgh

    where;

    g is acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s²

    P = 1000 x 9.8 x 0.05

    P = 490 N/m²

    Therefore, the pressure exerted at the base of the container is 490 N/m²
