Asked Nov 18, 2019

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?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Let P0 be the absolute pressure at some reference point, Patm 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...
