A spherical diving bell containing a camera is in the ocean at a depth of 147 m. It has a flat, transparent, circular port with a diameter of 12.7 cm. Find the total force on the port (use ρsea water = 1025 kg/m3).

2. Relevant equations

p = po + pgd

P = F/A

F = pA

3. The attempt at a solution

So do I find the total pressure and then multiply it be the area? I get a really big number (2.00 x 10 ^ 8) which doesn't seem right?
