## 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.

### Explanation of Solution

Given data:

Density of water ρ is 1000kgm3.

Depth at which diver is swimming h is 20 m.

Formula used:

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

P=Pgage+Patm (1)

Here,

Pgage is fluid pressure (water pressure), and

Patm is atmospheric pressure.

Formula to determine the gauge pressure is,

Pgage=ρgh (2)

Here,

ρ is the density of ocean water,

g is the gravitational constant, and

h is the depth at which submarine submerged.

Calculation:

Substitute 1000kgm3 for ρ, 20 m for h, and 9.81ms2 for g in equation (2).

Pgage=(1000kgm3)(9
