Work Step by Step

If the pressure is 14.7 lb/in², then it is at standard pressure, and the pressure is 101.3 kPa. A "pascal" is a unit of pressure and is equal to force of 1 newton per meter. The area of the can is .... Area = 2(15.0x40.0) + 2(12.5x40.0) + 2(15.0x12.5) Area = 2676 cm² or 0.2575 m² Force = 101300 N/m² x 0.2575 m² Force = 393,000 N
