Question

A liquid of mass 1.0 x 103kg fills a rectangular tank of length 2.5m and width 2.0m. If the tank is 4m high, what is the pressure at the middle of the tank?[g = 10ms-2]

Options

A) 1.0 x 104Nm-2

B) 2.0 x 103Nm-2

C) 1.5 x 103Nm-2

D) 1.0 x 103Nm-2


The correct answer is D.

Explanation:

Density of liquid = \(\frac{1 {\times} 10^3}{2.5 {\times} 2 {\times} 4}\)

= 50kgm3

pressure heg = 50 x 10 x \(\frac{4}{2}\)

= 1 x 103Nm-2
