Short Answer

The container shown in FIGURE EX14.12 is filled with oil. It is open to the atmosphere on
the left.a. What is the pressure at point A?b. What is the pressure difference between points A and B? Between points A and C?

a) Total pressure = 106 kPa

b) PC-PA = 4263 Pa and PB - PA = 4263 Pa

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Part(a) Step1: Given information

The tank and points (A, B and C) are given in figure

Part(a) Step 2: Explanation

Calculate the pressure at point A

PA = h ρ g

= (0.5m) x (870 kg / m3) (9.8 m/s2) = 4263 Pa

PTotal = Patm + Poil

PTota = 101325+4263 Pa=106 kPa
