How does the pressure at a point in a fluid vary with the depth of the point below the surface of the fluid? A bottle, full of air at atmospheric pressure, whose volume is 500 cubic centimeters, is sunken mouth downwards below the surface of a pond. How far must it be sunk for 100 cubic centimeters of water to run up into the bottle?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the deeper that point is placed in the fluid, the more pressure it experiences and the greater depth the bottle is lowered, the greater the compression. I know we're looking for the depth at which 100 cubic centimeters of air is replaced by 100 cubic centimeters of water but not sure how to proceed. Do I need to find the pressure of the bottle first? P=rgh but rearrange to find height/depth

H=P/rg ?
