A Thermodynamics problem

  1. Apr 4, 2005 #1
    Q. Consider a 2-m deep swimming pool. The pressure difference between the top and bottom of the pool is :

    Here is what I did:

    Pdiff. = Denisty(h20) * height * gravity

    Pdiff = 1000* 2m * 9.81 = 19.6 kPa

    Is this correct.

    Plz help

    You are correct. It's just Bernoulli's equation.

    Sure.But in this hydrostatic case,i think it's called Pascal's law...(not sure,been missing classes on hydrodynamics :wink:)...
