Imagine that a tank is filled with water. The height of the liquid column is 7 meters and the area is 1.5 square meters (m2). What's the force of gravity acting on the column of water?

Imagine that a tank is filled with water. The height of the liquid column is 7 meters and the area is 1.5 square meters (m2). The force of gravity acting on the column of water is 102,900 N. Solution: The volume of water is (1.5 m^2 * 7 m) = 10.5 m^3 10.5 m^3 = 10,500 liters Weight of the water = (10,500 kg) * (9.8 m/s^2) = 102,900 N (answer)

Imagine that a tank is filled with water. The height of the liquid column is 7 meters and the area is 1.5 square meters (m2). The force of gravity acting on the column of water is 102,900 N.

Solution:

The volume of water is (1.5 m^2 * 7 m) = 10.5 m^3

10.5 m^3 = 10,500 liters

Weight of the water = (10,500 kg) * (9.8 m/s^2) = 102,900 N (answer)

Solution:

The volume of water is (1.5 m^2 * 7 m) = 10.5 m^3

10.5 m^3 = 10,500 liters

Weight of the water = (10,500 kg) * (9.8 m/s^2) = 102,900 N (answer)
