Physics

an object in completely submerged in a liquid of density .65 grams per cubic centimeter at a depth of 4 meters what is the total pressure on the object. State your answer in atmospheres.

I only get 3 tries and both my other attempts failed. Ill lose credit now please help!

asked by Joe
  1. 4 meters is around 12 feet and 33 feet of water is about an atm but his is lighter than water, so total pressure will be about 1 1/4 atm including 1 atm at the surface
    .65 grams/cc = 650 kg/m^3
    pressure = 4 * 650 *9.81 Newtons /m^3 or Pascals
    = 25,506 Pascals
    but that is gage, not total pressure, add one atmosphere which is 101,325 Pascals
    so
    126831 Pascals
    now convert to atm
    126831 Pa/ 101325 Pa/atm = 1.25 atm
