Physics

The hydrostatic equation holds not just for air, but for other fluids such as water (air, though it is a gas, is often referred to as a 'fluid') as well. In the case of water the equation becomes even easier, as water (as opposed to air) can be treated as incompressible, meaning the density is constant. Use a value of 1000 kilogram per cubic metre as density.

Using this information, compute the local pressure (in [Pa]) at 2.5 metres depth in a swimming pool situated at 2400 metres altitude in the mountains. Assume a standard atmosphere.

I don't understand what formula to use for this question. :/

  1. It should be the Bernoulli one, but something that I still not getting.
