where h = 8.00 cm = 0.0800 m, and Eq. 14-9 has been used. Thus, the height of the water column (as measured from that level) is h w = (800/998)(8.00 cm) = 6.41 cm. The volume of water in that column is therefore V = π r 2 h w = π (1.50 cm) 2 (6.41 cm) = 45.3 cm 3 . 75. If we examine both sides of the U-tube at the level where the low-density liquid (with

Unformatted text preview: ρ = 0.800 g/cm 3 = 800 kg/m 3 ) meets the water (with ρ w = 0.998 g/cm 3 = 998 kg/m 3 ), then the pressures there on either side of the tube must agree: ρ gh = ρ w gh w...
