. What is the submarine's maximum safe depth?
Part A
The pressure inside the submarine is maintained at 1.0 atm.
ANSWER:
1400
Correct
15.7 Assume that this is an open vat.
Problem 15.7
A 1.50
diameter vat of liquid is 2.90
deep. The pressure at the bottom of the vat is 1.30
.
Part A
What is the mass of the liquid in the vat?
ANSWER:
5480
Correct
15.32 This is a relatively short distance, so you can assume that the density of the air is constant.

Part A
Which of the following statements is true?
Hint A.1
How to approach the problem
Since pressure is defined as force per unit area, the pressure at a given depth below the
surface of the ocean is the normal force on a small area at that depth divided by that area.
Thus, given the pressure at 10
you can determine the normal force on a unit area at that
depth. Also recall that, in general, the pressure in a fluid varies with height, but it also depends
on the external pressure applied to the fluid. In the case of the ocean, the external pressure
