Fluid Mechanics

Last fall, researchers using a manned submarine discovered coral reefs at unprecedented ocean depths of 1/2 mile, of the coast of South Carolina. Find the hydrostatic pressure at that depth. Find the fractional changes in density (drho/rho) and in volume (dV/V) for the seawater at that depth. The density of seawater at the surface of the ocean is 1025kg/m^{3}, and the bulk modulus of elasticity of seawater is 2.34*10^{9} Pa.

Step 1

The general equation for the hydrostatic pressure is given as follows:

Step 2

The equation for the bulk modulus of elasticity is as follows:

Step 3
