(a) Calculate the absolute pressure at the bottom of a fresh-water lake at a depth of 23.2 m. Assume the density of the water is 1.00 103 kg/m3 and the air above is at a pressure of 101.3 kPa.
Pa

(b) What force is exerted by the water on the window of an underwater vehicle at this depth if the window is circular and has a diameter of 33.1 cm?

    a)
    Density of H2O = 1E^3 = 1000kg/m^3
    Pair = 101.3 = 101300 Pa

    Pwater = (Density of H2O)*Depth*gravity

    Ptotal = Pair + Pwater

    b)
    diameter = 33.1cm
    r = 1/2 diameter
    Area = pi*r^2

    Force = Ptotal * Area
