Textbook Problem

The pressure at the bottom of a glass filled with water (ρ = 1 000 kg/m3) is P. The water is poured out and the glass is filled with ethyl alcohol (ρ = 806 kg/m3). The pressure at the bottom of the glass is now (a) smaller than P (b) equal to P (c) larger than P (d) indeterminate.

To determine
The pressure at the bottom of the glass.

Explanation

The pressure in the bottom of the glass is defined as P=(ρV)gA .

  • V is the volume.
  • A is the area,
  • g is the acceleration due to gravity.
  • ρ is the density
