Hello I'm having trouble with answering this question: Certain submarines are capable of speeds in excess of 30 knots. What is the total pressure sensed at the nose of a submarine if the vessel is at periscope depth (5 m) and a speed of 30 knots? (Assume a constant sea-water density of 1030 kg/m3.) What height would the captain read on a mercury manometer that sensed this total pressure?
I know the equations Po=Ps + (1/2)(rho)(V)^2 and dP=(rho)(g)(dh) but am having trouble finding the static pressure in order to find the total pressure.
