Hey guys, I'm helping my girlfriend who is in a 101 physics class...ha, I've taken enough engineering physics, and I guess I can't figure this one out. I'm thinking too much into it, and can't even understand the question(what its asking).
Is there a pressure variation(increase with depth) in a fuel tank on a spacecraft in orbit? Why or Why not?
I guess I'm thinking to use P = D(density)hg
The Attempt at a Solution
If I use this, and I'm still not positive for what its asking...but if I solve for h(depth),
h = P/Dg
Decrease in gravity(like what would be in space), would cause an increase in height.
Any suggestions/help? I'm not sure what to do here.
