The SS Titanic lies on the ocean °oor 4,000 m below the surface of the Atlantic, o® Newfoundland. If the density of sea water is 1,000 kg/m 3 , g = 9 : 81 m/s 2 and the atmospheric pressure is 10 5 N/m 2 (or one atmosphere), ¯nd the pressure exerted on the remains of the Titanic.

The manometer shown comprises two °uids: a light gas and water (of densities ½ g and ½ w ). If the elevations of the gas-water and water- atmosphere interfaces are as shown, ¯nd an expression for the pressure in the bulb of the manometer.
The earth's atmosphere behaves like an ideal gas with the equation of state p = ½RT . If the pressure of air in the atmosphere at sea level is one atmosphere, and it is assumed to be at a uniform temperature of 20 ± C, what is the pressure at an elevation of 1600 m?

Unformatted text preview: , g and are known. Water is retained by the dam wall shown below, which has a width of ` m. Find the reactionary force and turning moment that must be exerted at the foundation of the dam. Find also the line of action of the horizontal force exerted by water on the dam wall. Water is retained by the dam wall shown below, which has a width w . The vertical section of the wall is built in while the lower, inclined section is hinged and can rotate freely, as shown. Find the force and turning moment on the inclined section of the wall. Water is retained by the curved wall shown below, which has a width w . Find the vertical and horizontal forces exerted by the water on the wall. Water Air g M The sphere shown has a volume of 1 m 3 . When suspended by a mass of 250 kg, it `oats' with exactly half its volume above the water surface and half below. If the density of water is 1000 kg/m 3 , what is the density of the sphere? If the 250 kg mass is removed, how much of the sphere is submerged?...
