SPRING 2014 – CE 341 – INTRODUCTION TO FLUIDS TRADITIONAL HOMEWORK #2 – DUE FEBRUARY 24, 2014 1. Problem one has two parts (10 pts): a) A tank is filled with seawater to a depth of 12 ft. If the specific gravity of seawater is 1.03 and the atmospheric pressure at this location is 14.8 psi, then please find the absolute pressure (psi) at the bottom of the tank. b) An open tank contains brine to a depth of 2 m and a 3-m layer of oil on top of the brine. Density of brine is 1,030 kg/m 3 and the density of oil is 880 kg/m 3 . Find the gage pressure (kPa) at the bottom of the tank. A) B)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
