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  $$P = \rho g (h_2 -h_1)$$
                    $$\implies P = 1050 \times 10 \times (28-20)  $$
                   $$\implies P = 206000Pa$$
