The difference in pressures at a depth of 3.75 m for sea water and fresh water is 735 Pa. What is the difference in their densities?
A scuba diver dives to a depth of 1.25 m below the surface of the sea. The sea water has a density of 1 025 kg/m3. What pressure does the water exert on the diver, to the nearest pascal?
A pool containing a liquid with a density of 1,000 kg/m3 at the surface of an unknown planet produces a pressure of 8,400 Pa at a depth of 2.4 m. What is the acceleration due to gravity at the surface of this planet?
