Homework Statement
(In the attachment)There is two layers of liquids in the container .The density of the upper layer of the container, ##ρ_1=800kg/m^3## and the density of the bottom layer of the container ,##ρ_2=13600kg/m^3## .What is the pressure at the bottom of the container?
Homework Equations
Pressure at height ##h## in a liquid from the surface, ##p=hρg##
The Attempt at a Solution
I have first calculated the pressure at the bottom of the first layer,##p_1=(3*800*9.8)=23520~pa##.Then taking the bottom of the first layer as the surface of the second layer,pressure at the bottom of the second layer,##p_2=(1*13600*9.8)~pa=133280~pa##.So the total pressure at the bottom of the container,##p=p_o+p_1+p_2=(101325+23520+133280)~pa=258125~pa.##Is my solution correct?If yes,then how can I make the solution more better(as I think it's not enough).If my solution is wrong,then tell me what's wrong and give hint for the solution.
