## Homework Statement

(a) Calculate the absolute pressure at an ocean depth of 500 m. Assume the density of sea water is 1024 kg/m3 and that the air above exerts a pressure of 101.3 kPa. --I got this one its 5118900 Pa or N/m

(b) At this depth, what force must the frame around a circular submarine porthole having a diameter of 28.0 cm exert to counterbalance the force exerted by the water?

## Homework Equations

F=PA

## The Attempt at a Solution

F= (5118900)(pi*.28^2)=1.26e6

Thing is this is wrong and I have no idea why. Can someone enlighten me?
