A container is filled to a depth of 15.0 cm with water. On top of the water floats a 32.0-cm-thick layer of oil with specific gravity 0.600. What is the absolute pressure at the bottom of the container?

Step 1

Let P_{0} be the absolute pressure at some reference point, P_{atm} be the atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure exists in the upper surface of the oil. Let the boundary between water and oil be the reference level.

Step 2

The absolute pressure at...
