Pressure synthesis problem set
Calculate the acceleration due to gravity on an unknown planet given that a pressure of 51.5 kPa raises a 9.5 cm
^{2}
column of water 7.8 m high.
Give your answer to the nearest 1/10th of a m/s
^{2}
.
m/s

HINT 1
1 kPa = 1000 Pa = 1000 N/m
^{2}
HINT 2
Use the height and area of the column of water to calculate the water's mass
HINT 3
Use the pressure and area of the column of water to calculate the water's weight
HINT 4
mass × gravity = weight
solve for gravity
