I have tried and tried to figure this out but i'm getting no where. Can anyone help me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) Calculate the gauge pressure (it does not include atmosphereric P) required to compress pure water from 1.000 L to 989 mL. Give an answer in both N/m^2 and psi, lb/in^2.

(b) What height in meters and feet of a 1x1 cm^2 steel bar (density=7.86 g/cm^3) is required to exert the pressure found in part (a)?

(c) How many total pounds of steel would be required to exert this pressure on one cubic face of a liter of water (1 L= 1 cubic decimeter)?
