Homework Help: Where is the greatest pressure

  1. Dec 6, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    see attachment

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not sure if this situation fullfills the requirements of Bernoulli's equation but if it does than the pressure should be the same at each point? If it does not satisfy Bernoulli how would I solve?

    There's no need for Bernoulli, since this is a static case. (But Bernoulli does cover static cases.) All you need is the basic hydrostatic principle that pressure depends only upon depth below the surface.
