1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rectangular metal can with dimensions of 0.234 meters by 0.194 meters by 0.143 meters is used in a physics demonstration to show the force exerted by air pressure. A small quantity of water is poured into the can and brought to a boil. Then the can is capped and allowed to cool, which crushes the can. What is the total force exerted on the can by the air around it, assuming a perfect vacuum inside? 2. Relevant equations 1 atm = 101300 Pa 3. The attempt at a solution so just find the area of each of the three sides and multiply by 2 so 2(.234*.194)+2(.194*.143)+2(.234*.143) and so i got .2132 m^2 so then we know 101300 Pa = N/m^2 so 101300pa * .2132 m^2 = N so N = 21594.16 am i right?
