Question

# A giant squid of length 20.0m is vertical in seawater, with the top of the squid at a depth of $$8.00m$$. The density of seawater is $$1050kgm^{-3}$$.What is the difference in pressure between the top and the bottom of the squid?

A
82000 Pa
B
206000 Pa
C
288000 Pa
D
389000 Pa

Solution

## The correct option is B $$206 000\ Pa$$Difference in pressure  $$P = \rho g (h_2 -h_1)$$                    $$\implies P = 1050 \times 10 \times (28-20)$$                   $$\implies P = 206000Pa$$Physics
