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

You are scuba diving to reach a ship sunk at a depth of 100m. What is the pressure in atm at this depth? Density of fresh water is 1000kg/m^3 and air pressure at lake surface=1atm=1.013x10^5 N/m^2

2. Relevant equations

P2=P1+pgd

p=density

3. The attempt at a solution

P2=P1+pgd

P2=(1.013x10^5 N/m^2) + (1000kg/m^3)(9.8m/s^2)(100m)

P2=1081300

Its at this point that i get confused. I don't know what the units are for this answer.
