The engineer of a Russian nuclear submarine lurking under the Arctic Sea reports an outside pressure of 35 ATM. How deep is the submarine? Neglect ice thickness.

  • physics -

    counting atmospheric pressure, 34 atm of water is above.

    34*101.3kN/m^2=h*densityArticWater*g

    using 1027kg/m^3 as the density of Artic water

    h= 34*101300/(9.8*1027)=342 meters

    check my work.
