Question

Calculate the pressure at a depth of 50 m below sea level.

Given:
Density of sea water = 1024 kg/m3.
And, acceleration due to gravity  g=10 m/s2


  1. 512000Pa

  2. 5120Pa

  3. 51200Pa

  4. 512Pa


Solution

The correct option is A

512000Pa


The expression of pressure at the bottom of a liquid of height h and density ρ is given by ρgh.
The given values are:
ρ=1024 kg/m3, h=50 m and  g=10 m/s2
Thus, pressure=ρgh=1024×50×10=512000Pa.
