for some reason my brain is dead on this one:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

diagram: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/biggm/diagram.jpg [Broken]

here is a u-tube of uniform cross sectional area, partially filled with Hg. water is poured into both sides and the equilibrium is as shown. the value of h2=1.00cm. I am to calculate the value of h1.

I know it has to do with P= Po + [tex]\rho[/tex]gh but am not sure how to apply it correctly.

thanks
