  1. rho g h = 1000 (9.81)(30) = 2.94*10^5
    add 1 atm = 1*10^5
    and get total of 3.9 * 10^5

  3. Why do you need to add the 1 atm? And the 2 cm in this question does not matter?

  4. Because the air we live in also has pressure
    no pressure change in a horizontal hose with no flow through it.
