Problem: What pressure, in atmospheres, is exerted on the body of a diver if she is 36 ft below the surface of the water when atmospheric pressure at the surface is 730 mm Hg ? Assume that the density of the water is 1.00 g/cm3 = 1.00 103 kg/m3. The gravitational constant is 9.81 m/s2, and 1 Pa = 1 kg/m-s2.
