## Homework Statement

A 410kg bluefin tuna rests motionless at a depth of 15m below the ocean's surface. The absolute pressure at this depth is 251,700 Pa. What is the volume of the fish?

## Homework Equations

absolute P=gauge Pressure+atmospheric pressure

1atm=1.03e

^{5}Pa

P=density x g x height

density=mass/volume

## The Attempt at a Solution

I first converted to atmospheres. So 251,700 Pa is 2.444 atm.

2.44atm=(410/V)(9.8)(15)+1atm

1.44atm=410/V x 9.8 x 15

V=41854 m

This cannot be right...
