11.2 Pressure A F P = SI Unit of Pressure: 1 N/m 2 = 1Pa Pascal
11.2 Pressure Example 2 The Force on a Swimmer Suppose the pressure acting on the back of a swimmer’s hand is 1.2x10 5 Pa. The surface area of the back of the hand is 8.4x10 -3 m 2 . (a)Determine the magnitude of the force that acts on it. (b) Discuss the direction of the force.

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.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
