Pressure of water problem

  1. Mar 19, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The density of fresh water is 1000 kg/m3. Normal air pressure (i.e., 1 atm) is 1.013(105) Pa. If someone were beneath 25.0 m of water, what pressure would they experience? Give your answer in Pascals and in atmospheres.

    2. Relevant equations

    i guess the (density of water)(g)(h)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know its sad... but wat does g stand for? i missed 1 week of class and i have a test 2moro! please help! thanks

    g = 9.81 [m/s^2] = gravitational acceleration. :smile:
