contains some mercury. A quantity of water is carefully poured into the
left arm of the tube until the vertical height of the water is H. The
density of water is pW , and the density of mercury is pHg. a. Derive an expression for the gauge pressure at the water—mercury

weight of container plus water, recorded by the balance, is W]. A block of aluminum of mass
M is suspended from a wire. When the aluminum is out of the water, the tension recorded on
the wire is T]. (Gravity, of course, is acting downwards.) The block is lowered and completely immersed in the water (see middle figure). The block
does not touch the bottom of the container and is still suspended from the wire. The water
level rises to hz. Assume the container walls are vertical between heights hI and hz, and that
the cross sectional area of the container at these heights is A. The density of water is ,0w , and the density of aluminum, is pA .
