This was a question on my last exam for physical chemistry. There were no examples in the book as to how to do this question and I think it pertains to physics. I would like to know how to do this in the event that it appears on the final.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"An iron pipe 2 m long and closed at one end is lowered vertically into water until the closed end is flush with the water surface. Calculate the height h of the water level in the pipe. Additional data: 25 degrees Celsius, diameter of pipe = 3 in, density of water is 1 x 10^3 kgm^-3, barometric pressure is 100,000 Pa = 10 hydrostatic head of water. Neglect the effect of water vapor pressure."

Thanks
