**I am requesting for another set of eyes to double check my work, I believe my answer is correct but I am not sure. I also do not understand why 0.75 is the specific gravity of gasoline in this equation when it actually can range from 0.71-0.77**

1. Homework Statement

1. Homework Statement

**Calculate the pressure exerted on a 26-ft column filled with 13 ft. of gasoline. The vapor pressure of gasoline at 100°F is 12 psi.**

## Homework Equations

Height x 0.433 x specific gravity (according to the textbook) = pressure.

## The Attempt at a Solution

26 ft. x 0.433 x 0.75 = 8.4435 psi + 12 psi =

*20.4435 psi*
