While exploring a sunken ocean liner, the principal researcher found hte absolute pressure on the robot observatino submarine at the level of the ship to be about 413 atmospheres. The density of seawater is [itex]1025-kg/m^3[/itex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the gauge pressure [itex]p_g[/itex] on the sunken ocean liner.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the problem, i have the formula:

[itex] p = p_{o} + p(to-lazy-to-look-up-density)gh[/itex]

I do not know which [itex]p[/itex] or [itex]p_o[/itex] but for the matter of making my point lets say, [itex]p_{o} = 413 at [/itex] or [itex] 41836900-Pa [/itex]. So

then:

[itex]p = 41836900-Pa + (1025-kg/m^{3})(9.81-m/s^{2})h[/itex]

So Ive got [itex]p[/itex] and [itex]h[/itex] wish means, I have nothing. :uhh: .

Any ideas, would be appreciated.
