Underwater Pressure

  1. May 2, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The pressure exerted on an underwater vessel is 9.42 ATM. If the vessel is in fresh water, to what depth has the vessel descended?

    2. Formula

    P=Po + pgh

    It is fresh water so p=1000 kg/m^3

    Hi cchiapuzio and welcome to the forum!
    Do you know any formula that relates pressure vs depth? If yes, post it here and try to use it. :smile:
    Also, what is water density?
