A submarine called the DeepView 66 is currently being built to take tourists on undersea tours along tropical coral reefs. According to the guidelines of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, to be safe for human occupancy the submarine must be able to withstand a pressure of 1.0 × 106 Pa from the water. To what depth can the submarine safely descend in seawater? Take the density of seawater to be 1030 kg/m3.
