Textbook Question
Chapter 1, Problem 1.35P

A 2.5 m -tall steel cylinder has a cross-sectional area of 1.5 m 2 . At the bottom, with a height of 0.5 m , is liquid water, on top of which is a 1-rn-high layer of engine oil. This is shown in Fig. P1.35. The oil surface is exposed to atmospheric air at 101 kpa . What is the highest pressure in the water?
