A container is filled to a depth of 22.0 cm with water. On top of the water floats a 33.0-cm-thick layer of oil with specific gravity 0.600. What is the absolute pressure at the bottom of the container?

PA=Patm+density*g*h

oil's specific gravity is 0.6

density of oil=0.6*1000kg/m^3=600kg/m^3

PA=1.103*10^5+600*9.8*0.33=112240.4Pa

PB=112240.4Pa+1000*9.8*0.22=114396.4 Pa

wrong answer you are not smar

....hold up let me try to fix it

Jun 11th, 2015

Pabs = Patm + ρw*g*Dw + ρo*g*Do = 1.013E5 + 1000*9.8*.22 + 600*9.8*0.33

Pabs = 105396.4 Pa=1.05E5 Pa

what is that 1.05E5 ??????

Jun 11th, 2015

it means 1.05*10^5, they are the same thing

is there any specific sig fig requirement? Like 3 sig figs, 4 sig figs

Jun 11th, 2015

no the Q as I send to you

Jun 11th, 2015

did you try to type in 105396.4 ?
