The viewing window in a diving suit has an area of 65 cm^2. If an attempt were made to maintain the pressure on the inside of the suit of 1 atm, what force would the window have to withstand if the diver descended to a depth of 150 m. Take the specific gravity of the water to be 1.05.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So far...

[tex] P_{A} = P_{0} + \rho gh [/tex] (1)

[tex] P = \frac{F}{A} [/tex] (2)

im assuming i find the pressure in (1) and just multiply it by the area to get the F in (2). Look right?
