A cylindrical diving bell 4.0m tall, with an open bottom, is lowered to the bottom of a lake on a day when atmospheric pressure is 100 kPa. It is observed that water rises inside the bell to within 1.0m of the top. A)What is the pressure of the air trapped in the diving bell? B) How deep is the lake? (Assume constant temperature)
