Calculate the pressure exerted by water on a scuba diver who is swimming at a depth of 20 m below the water surface.

To determine

Find the pressure exerted by water on a scuba diver.

**Given data:**

Density of water

Depth at which diver is swimming

**Formula used:**

Formula to determine the pressure exerted by water on a submarine is,

Here,

Formula to determine the gauge pressure is,

Here,

*g* is the gravitational constant, and

*h* is the depth at which submarine submerged.

**Calculation:**

Substitute *h*, and *g* in equation (2).
