Question#1 Collapse depth (or crush depth) is the submerged depth that a submarine cannot exceed without collapsing because of the surrounding water pressure. The collapse depth of modern submarines is not quite a kilometer (730 m). Assuming seawater to be incompressible (sp. gr. = 1.03), what is the crush depth pressure in N/m2 and psi (lb/in.2)? Is the pressure you computed absolute or gauge pressure?
Question#2 A storage tank 6 m * 6 m * 6 m2 is filled with water. Determine the force on the bottom and on each side.
Question#3 A closed tank contains oil with a specific gravity 0.85. If the gauge pressure at a point 10 feet below the oil surface is 23.7 psi (lb/in.2), determine the absolute pressure and gauge pressure (in psi) in the air space at the top of the oil surface. Patm= 14.7 psi.
Question#4 A significant amount of mercury is poured into a U-tube with both ends open to the atmosphere. If water is poured into one leg of the U-tube until the water column is 3 feet above the mercury–water meniscus, what is the elevation difference between the mercury surfaces in the two legs?
Question#5 Water is flowing in pipe A and oil (sp. gr. = 0.822) is flowing in pipe B. If mercury is used as the manometer liquid, determine the pressure difference between A and B in psi.
