**1. Homework Statement**

**A simple U-tube that is open on both ends is partially filled with a liquid of density (491 kg/m^3). Water is then poured into one arm of the tube, forming a column height of (8.2 cm). The density of the heavy liquid is (1000 kg/m^3). What's the difference , h, in the height's of the two liquids?**

**2. Homework Equations**

I'm guessing the relevant equations are directly to bernoulli's equation.

**P + (1/2)[tex]\rho[/tex][tex]\upsilon[/tex]^2 + [tex]\rho[/tex]gy**

**P_1 - P_2 = [tex]\rho[/tex]g(y_1 - y_2) = [tex]\rho[/tex]gh**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I figured two equations, two uknowns....but I have no idea really. it's not really the sum of the forces, it'd have to be a pressures setup...??? help?
