Question

Calculate the pressure at a depth of 100m below the surface of the sea. The density of sea water is 1024kgm3.


  1. 1024000Pa

  2. 10240Pa

  3. None of these

  4. 102400Pa


Solution

The correct option is A

1024000Pa


The expression of pressure at the bottom of a liquid of height ‘h’ and density ‘d’ is given by dgh.
The given values are: d=1024kgm3,h=100m and g=10ms2
Thus,  pressure=dgh=1024 ×100 ×10=1024000Pa.
