Problem 103P

Consider two water tanks filled with water. The first tank is 8 m high and is stationary, while the second tank is 2 m high and is moving upward with an acceleration of 5 m/s2. Which tank will have a higher pressure at the bottom?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1:

Height of the first tank h1 = 8 m

Height of the second tank h2 = 2 m

Upward acceleration in the second tank a = 5 m/s2

Acceleration due to gravity g = 9.8 m/s2

Density of water = 1000 kg/m3
