One of the dangers of tornados and hurricanes is the rapid drop in air pressure that is associatedwith such storms. Assume that the air pressure inside of a sealed house is 1.02 atm when ahurricane hits. The hurricane rapidly decreases the external air pressure to 0.910 atm. What netforce (directed outwards) is exerted ona 1.73 m square window on the house?A) 3.50 x 105 N104 NB) 3.93 x 105 NC) 3.76 x 104 ND) 3.33 x
