At what depth below the surface of the oil, relative density 0.8 will produce a pressure of 120 kN/m2. What depth of water is this equivalent to?

A 500,000 barrel crude oil storage tank is 46 feet high. If the tank is full and the oil has a specific gravity of 0.89, what pressure will exist at the base of the tank?

A 150 inclined manometer containing mercury is connected to two taps A an B containing water. Tap B is 4 ft vertically higher than Tap A. When the pressure in Tap B is 6 psi, the manometer reads 5 inches along the inclined tube. Calculate the new manometer reading (in inches) if the pressure in Tap A is increased by 2 psi.
