(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A sensor is at rest in a fuel tank , it is at a depth of 0.34m

and the fuel has a specific gravity of 0.7 .

Calculate the pressure experienced by the sensor ?

2. Relevant equations

I guess Pressure = force/area

3. The attempt at a solution

I considered gravity as the force

And depth as the area

to apply it on the stated equation

Using some site calculater

Result was = 2.0588235294118 newton/meter^2
