m studying civil engineering and trying to research how a bomb would affect a dam, but i know little about physics so could anyone help with this problem?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dam has dimensions 7.6m wide at the top, 39.6m wide at the bottom and 34m tall, water level is 2m from top of the dam.

135*10^6 cubic metres of water behind dam

bomb explodes at a depth of 9m and creates a pressure of 100kN/m^2 over the back of the dam in addition to the water,

how would i draw a graph to represent the pressure behind the dam?

many thanks..
