Step 1

Given,

Step 2

Absolute pressure is the sum of atmospheric pressure and gauge pressure acting on surface. Pressure acting on top surface of tank is atmospheric pressure (P0) while gauge pressure is acting and depends on the position of surface at which pressure is acting due to fluid. Absolute pressure is mathematically expressed as follows,

Step 3

Gauge pressure acts on a body due to position of surface. Gauge p...
