## Homework Statement

An aquarium 5 ft long, 1 ft wide, and 5 ft deep is full of water. (Recall that the weight density of water is 62.5 lb/ft3.)

(a)Find the hydrostatic pressure on the bottom of the aquarium in lb/ft^2

## Homework Equations

hydrostatic pressure = ρgd = δd

ρ = 62.5 lb/ft^3

g = 9.8 m/s^2

d = 5ft

## The Attempt at a Solution

The equation is straightforward, but obtaining my answer in the unit asked, that's the problem. How does eliminate s^2?
