    A vessel has the height of 20 meters. Calculate the pressure at the bottom of the tank if it is only 50% full. take the density of water is 1000 kg per meters cubed and gravity as 10m/s squared. neglect atmospheric pressure as this will be negligable in comparison.

    can anybody work this out, i have tried and tried again i just cant seem to do it.

    This is abaout as easy as it gets for problems of "hydrostatic pressure."

    IF the height of the container is 20m, and it is half full of water, what's the dpth of the water?
