Here are a couple problems I would like to check and a couple I'm not sure how to do:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.3)A 650kg weather balloon is designed to lift a 4600kg package. What volume should the balloon have after being inflated with helium at 0C and 1 atm pressure to lift the total load?

Density of helium = .179 pa.

.179 = (650 + 4600)/Volume.

Volume = 29000m^3?

1.4) A submerged submarine alters its buoyancy so that it initially accelerates upward at 0.325m/s^2. What is the submarines average density at this time?

The density of seawater is 1.025x10^3 kg/m^3. From here I have no idea where to go. Can someone give me a hint?

2.2) Water is to be pumped to the top of the Empire State Building, which is 366m tall. What gauge pressure is needed in the water line at the base of the building to raise the water to this height?

Based on a formula from my book, Absolute pressure = atmospherice pressure + (density x free-fall acceleration x depth). So,

1.01x10^5 pa + (1.00x10^3 x 9.81 x 366) = 3.69x10^6 pa?

3.3) The water supply of a building is fed through a main entrance pipe that is 6.0cm in diameter. A 2.0cm diameter faucet tap position 2.00m above the main pipe fills a 2.5x10^-2 m^3 container in 30.0s. What is the speed of the faucet and What is the gauge pressure in the main pipe?

The cross-sectional area of the main pipe is .0113 meters^2. The cross-sectional area of the faucet tap is .0013m^2. The flow rate from the faucet is .00083m^3/s. From here I do not know where to go, can someone guide me in the right direction?

Thank you.
