if I want to calculate the pressure at a given depth in the ocean or a lake(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1 atmosphere of pressure will support a column of water 32 feet high right?

so if the lake is 20,000 feet deep can we just divide 20,000

by 32 and get 625 atmospheres at the depth?

i see that the pressure equation is p=(rho)gh is this measured in Pascal’s .

This is not a homework question.
