| **Kerosene was poured into the vessel. Determine the height of the column of kerosene if it exerts a pressure of 160 kPa on the bottom of the vessels.**

Given:

P = 160 kPa (translated into SI) = 160,000 Pa;

p = 800 kg / m³ is the density of kerosene.

Find:

h -?

Solution:

From the formula P = p * g * h, where P is the pressure, p is the density of the liquid, g is the acceleration of gravity, h is the height of the liquid column, we express the height: h = P / (p * g) = 160000 / (800 * 10) = 20 m;

Answer: The height of the kerosene column is 20 meters
