    1.)Picture of closed container holding water and oil. Air at 34kPA below atmospheric pressure is above the oil. Calculate pressure at the bottom of the container in kPA(gage)

    2.)Picture of washing machine. The pump pulls fluid from the tub and delivers it to the disposal sink. Calculate the pressure at the inlet to the pump when the water is static (no flow). The soapy water solution has a specific gravity of 1.15
