As a submarine dives, the pressure on its hull..
a. remains constant
c. depends on the decrease in volume of the submarine
d . decreases
e. depends on the thickeness of the walls of the submarine
P = F / A
The Attempt at a Solution
Not c. since the volume remains constant. Ballasts are simply used to allow in water in order to dive...
Not d. Pressure increases as one goes deeper.
I think the answer is either b or e. The pressure on the hull does increase but that is compensated by increasing the thickness of the hull....
