A block of mass 20g sits at rest on a plate that is at the top of the fluid on one side of a u-tube as shown in figure P10.38. The u tube contains two different fluids with densities p1= 1000 kg/m^3 and p2= 600 kg/m^3 and has a cross sectional area of A= 5.0 x10^-4 m^2. If the surfaces are offset by an amount h as shown
a) which side of the u-tube contains the fluid with the greatest density.
b) Find h (assume h is positive)
a photo of the u-tube can be found by searching google for "College Physics Figure P10.38" Nicholas Giordano.
