Wanda watches the fish in her fish tank and notices that the angel fish like to feed at the water’s surface, while the catfish feed 0.300 m below at the bottom of the tank. If the average density of the water in the tank is 1000. kg/m3, what is the pressure on the catfish? 2. Phyllis is being fed intravenously in her hospital bed from a bottle 0.400 m above her arm that contains a nutrient solution whose density is 1025 kg/m3. What is the pressure of the fluid that is going into Phyllis’ arm? 3. Palmer drops an ice cube into his glass of water.
