(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

By what factor is the total pressure greater at a depth of 850 m of sea water than at the surface where the pressure is one atmosphere? (water density = 1000 kg/m3, one atmosphere pressure = 1.01 x 105 Pascals (N/m2), g = 9.8 m/s2 )

2. Relevant equations

P=P(initial)+ρgh

3. The attempt at a solution

P=(1.01x10^5)+(1000kg/m^3*9.8m/s^2*850m)
