    Rising water level

    Homework Statement Suppose that a zone of low atmospheric pressure (a "low") is at some place on the surface of the sea. The pressure at the center of the "low" is 64 mm-Hg less than the pressure at a large distance from the center. By how much will this cause the water level to rise at the...
