(a) Find the bloods weight and (b) express it as a percentage of the body weight.

The surface area of the back of the hand is 8.4x103 m 2 . (a)Determine the magnitude of the force that acts on it. (b) Discuss the direction of the force. 11.2 Pressure A F P = ( 29 ( 29 N 10 . 1 m 10 4 . 8 m N 10 2 . 1 3 2 3 2 5 = = = PA F Since the water pushes perpendicularly against the back of the hand, the force is directed downward in the drawing. 11.2 Pressure Atmospheric Pressure at Sea Level: 1.013x10 5 Pa = 1 atmosphere 11.3 Pressure and Depth in a Static Fluid 1 2 = = mg A P A P F y mg A P A P + = 1 2 V m = 11.3 Pressure and Depth in a Static Fluid Vg A P A P + = 1 2 Ah V = Ahg A P A P + = 1 2 hg P P + = 1 2 11.3 Pressure and Depth in a Static Fluid Conceptual Example 3 The Hoover Dam Lake Mead is the largest wholly artificial reservoir in the United States. The water in the reservoir backs up behind the dam for a considerable distance (120 miles). Suppose that all the water in Lake Mead were removed except a relatively narrow vertical column. Would the Hoover Same still be needed to contain the water, or could a much less massive structure do the job? 11.3 Pressure and Depth in a Static Fluid Example 4 The Swimming Hole Points A and B are located a distance of 5.50 m beneath the surface of the water. Find the pressure at each of these two locations. 11.3 Pressure and Depth in a Static Fluid ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 Pa 10 55 . 1 m 50 . 5 s m 80 . 9 m kg 10 00 . 1 Pa 10 01 . 1 5 2 3 3 pressure c atmospheri 5 2 = + = P gh P P + = 1 2 11.4 11....
