    A submarine dives to a depth of 333 feet in the ocean. What is the force (in pounds) acting on a hatch that has an area of 4 square feet? Do not consider atmospheric pressure in your calculation, since the pressure inside of the submarine is maintained at 1 atmosphere, which offsets the 1 atmosphere of pressure that normally would be added to the gauge pressure

    Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.

    The volume of the column of water pressing on the hatch is:

    V = A * h

    Where A is the cross sectional area and h is the water's ...

    Solution Summary

    The pressure at depth in the atmosphere is examined.
