Homework Help: Specific gravity and pressure question

  1. Feb 4, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    a collapsible plastic bag contains a glucose solution. if the avg gauge pressure in the vein is 12300 pa, what must be the minimum height of the bag in order to infuse glucose into the vein? assume the specific gravity of the solution is 1.02. the acceleration of gravity is 9.8.
    answer in units of m.


    2. Relevant equations
    d=m/v
    p=HDa
    f=pa

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i tried plugging in everything that i could into different equations but i can't get anything that seem right, i don't really understand specific gravity cause my teacher hasn't taught it to us.
