2. We note that the container is cylindrical, the important aspect of this being that it has a uniform cross-section (as viewed from above); this allows us to relate the pressure at the bottom simply to the total weight of the liquids. Using the fact that 1L = 1000 cm 3 , we find the weight of the first liquid to be 33 2 6 2 11 1 1 (2.6 g / cm )(0.50 L)(1000 cm / L)(980 cm/s ) 1.27 10 g cm/s 12.7 N. Wm g V g ρ == = =×⋅ = In the last step, we have converted grams to kilograms and centimeters to meters.
