## Rationalize the following observations.a. Aerosol cans will explode if heated.b. You can drink through a soda straw.c. A thin-walled can will collapse when the air inside is removed by a vacuum pump.d. Manufacturers produce different types of tennis balls for high and low elevations.

a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The following observations are to be rationalized.

Concept Introduction:

The force acting per unit area is called as Pressure. Differential pressure is indicated by measuring devices i.e. in relative with the atmosphere pressure. This is known as gauge pressure. The calculated pressure can either be positive or negative with respect to the atmospheric pressure. Vacuum is generally known as a negative gauge pressure.

Atmospheric pressure is measured by using an instruments called as barometer and manometer.

### Explanation of Solution

The pressure of the gas inside the can will get increased when the can gets heated. At constant V
