Answer:

A container is filled with water and the pressure at the container bottom is P. If the container is instead filled with oil having a density of 0.80 that of water, what new bottom pressure results?

Multiple Choice

Answer:

A container is filled with water, and the pressure at the bottom of the container is P. Then the container is emptied halfway and topped off with oil of density 0.80 10

^{3 }kg/m^{3}, which floats on top of the water. What is the pressure at the bottom of the container now? Multiple Choice

Answer:

At a pressure of 1 atmosphere a column of mercury in a barometer is supported to the height h = 0.76 m. The density of mercury is 13.6 10

Answer:

Dams at two different locations are needed to form a lake. When the lake is filled, the water level will be at the top of both dams. Dam #2 is twice as high and three as wide as Dam #1. How much greater is the force of the water on Dam #2 than the force on Dam #1? (Ignore atmospheric pressure; it is pushing on both sides of the dams.)

Multiple Choice

Answer:

Atmospheric pressure is 1.0 10

^{5}N/m^{2}, and the density of air is 1.29 kg/m^{3}. If the density of air is constant as you get higher and higher, calculate the height of the atmosphere needed to produce this pressure. Multiple Choice
