Hi all,

Can someone clarify whether the following is right?

Assume a Cylindrical tank with a base area of 2000 sq.cm, is filled with water upto 15 metres ( tank starts from ground level)

1) The pressure at the bottom of tank will be 2.5 bar ( approx) i.e 1 bar pressure for every 10 metres + 1 bar atmospheric pressure.

2) Now if i want to find weight at specific part of base area, say 100 sq.cm, then (conversion 1 bar = 1 kgf/cm2). Hence weight on 100 sq.cm will be 2.5 kilogram * 100 sq.cm = 250 kilogram

Whether the above working is right?? If so is it right to say " A water tank of 15 metres will exert 250 kilogram weight for every 100 sq.cm"

Please clarify. Thank you.
