# 12.22 .. A closed container is partially filled with water. Initially the air above the water is at atmospheric pressure 11.01 * 105 Pa2 and the gauge pressure at the bottom of the water is 2500 Pa. Then additional air is pumped in increasing the pressure of the air above the water by 1500 Pa. (a) What is the gauge pressure at the bottom of the water? (b) By how much must the water level in the container be reduced by drawing some water out through a valve at the bottom of the container to return the gauge pressure at the bottom of the water to its original value of 2500 Pa? The pressure of the air above the water is maintained at 1500 Pa above atmospheric pressure.

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
