The following tube is composed of both oil (density 900kg/m3) and water as shown below. Calculate the pressure at P1, P2, and P3.?
- NCSLv 71 month ago
p₁ = p₂ = p₀ + 900kg/m³ * 9.8m/s² * 0.75m = p₀ + 6615 Pa
p₃ = p₀ + 900kg/m³ * 9.8m/s² * 0.50m = p₀ + 4410 Pa
This gives the absolute pressures. For gauge, subtract p₀.
