Pressure synthesis problem set
Pressure synthesis problem set
On an unnamed planet where gravity is 5.4 m/s
^{2}
, calculate how many meters a 1.7 cm
^{2}
column of water will rise when a pressure of 48.6 kPa is applied.
Give your answer to the nearest 10th of a meter.
m
HINT 1
1 kPa = 1000 Pa = 1000 N/m
^{2}
HINT 2
Use the pressure and the area of the column to find the weight of the water.
HINT 3
Use the weight of the water and gravity to find the mass of the water.
HINT 4
Use the density of water (1 g / cm
^{3}
) to get the volume of the water from its mass.
