In a huge oil tanker, salt water has flooded an oil tank to a depth of h2 = 4.50 m. On top of the water is a layer of oil h1 = 7.55 m deep, as in the crosssectional view of the tank as shown in the figure. The oil has a density of 0.700 g/cm3. Find the pressure at the bottom of the tank. (Take 1,025 kg/m3 as the density of salt water.)
