The main water line enters a house on the first floor. The line has a gauge pressure of 2.00 x10^5 Pa.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) A faucet on the second floor, 7.0 m above the first floor, is turned off. What is the gauge pressure at this faucet?

P2= P1 + (density x g x h)

(2 x 10^5)= P1 + (1000 x 9.81 x 7)

P1= 131330 Pa
