## What is the pressure on a swimmer 100m below the surface of water?

Hence the pressure on the swimmer is 2 atm.

## What is the pressure on a swimmer 20m below the surface of water?

Hence pressure = 3.0 atmosphere = 3 atm.

## What is the pressure 100m below the surface of sea water of density 1150kg m3?

⇒ The pressure due to the column of water at a depth of 100 m below the surface of the sea is 115000 kgf/m 2=1127.765 kPa.

## What is the pressure of 1 meter of water?

Depth and hydrostatic pressure

1 3.28 9.81
2 6.56 19.6
3 9.84 29.4

## How much pressure can a human take underwater?

Human beings can withstand 3 to 4 atmospheres of pressure, or 43.5 to 58 psi. Water weighs 64 pounds per cubic foot, or one atmosphere per 33 feet of depth, and presses in from all sides. The ocean’s pressure can indeed crush you.

## How much pressure is 7 miles underwater?

While atmospheric pressure in the average home or office is 14.7 pounds per square inch (PSI), it is more than 16,000 PSI at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

## What is the pressure at the surface of water?

If you are at sea level, each square inch of your surface is subjected to a force of 14.6 pounds. The pressure increases about one atmosphere for every 10 meters of water depth. At a depth of 5,000 meters the pressure will be approximately 500 atmospheres or 500 times greater than the pressure at sea level.

## Which of the following is NOT unit of pressure?

Out of the four options, we know that pascal, torr and atm are units of pressure. Therefore, dynes is not a unit of pressure. Dyne is a unit of force.
