At what depth beneath the surface of a lake is the absolute pressure 6 times the atmospheric pressure of 1.01 x 105 Pa that acts on the lake's surface?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

pressure = density * g * h

I thought to multiply 6 * 1.10 X 10^5 pa. Then divide that answer by 1000 kg/m3 (density of water, right?) * 9.8 m/s/s.

This was marked wrong my webassign.

Can someone help me figure out what I did wrongly?

Thank you.
