Problem 17DQ

At a certain depth in an incompressible liquid, the absolute pressure is p. At twice this depth, will the absolute pressure be equal to 2p, greater than 2p, or less than 2p? Justify your answer.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 17DQ Step 1 of 3: The absolute pressure P(d) at a depth d inside a fluid with density , is greater than the pressure at the surface(P 0 by an amount gd. Also the pressure is same at any two points at the same level in the fluid, irrespective of the shape of the container. Absolute Pressure at depth d, P(d) = P 0gd……………...1
