# The bottom of a box has a surface area of 58.8 cm^2. The mass of the box is 12.0 kg. Acceleration due to gravity at sea level is 9.80 m/s2. Identify the pressure exerted by the box where it rests. A.) 2.00 Pa B.) 72.0 Pa C.) 2.00 x 10^4 Pa D.) 0.500 Pa

Answer: There are several information's of immense importance already given. Let us now focus on the problem in hand.

Pressure = Force/Area
Area = 58.8 cm^2
= 0.0058 m2
Then
Pressure = (12 * 9.8)/0.0058
= 20275 Pascals
= 2 Pa
The correct option among all the options that are given in the question is the first option or option "A". I hope that this is the answer that has actually come to your desired help.

How do you calculate an object’s mechanical energy?

The calculation of mechanical energy is done via two components of mechanical energy, which are kinetic energy and potential energy.

Explanation:

Kinetic energy is the energy which is required to perform an action. Potential energy is the energy which the body has, just due to the virtue of being capable of doing work. Potential Energy is calculated by,

Kinetic energy is calculated by,

Therefore, Energy=kinetic energy + potential energy

The formula for mechanical energy is mechanical energy equal to kinetic energy plus potential energy
