Problem 9E

Oceans on Mars. Scientists have found evidence that Mars may once have had an ocean 0.500 km deep. The acceleration due to gravity on Mars is 3.71 m/s2. (a) What would be the gauge pressure at the bottom of such an ocean, assuming it was freshwater? (b) To what depth would you need to go in the earth’s ocean to experience the same gauge pressure?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 9E Problem (a) Step 1: Depth of the ocean h = 0.5 km 500 m Acceleration due to gravity on Mars g = 3.71 m/s 2 M 3 Density of water = 1000 kg/m
