# Pressure on a submarine

Not what you're looking for? Search our solutions OR ask your own Custom question.

Assuming the density of seawater is 1.03 g/cm3, find the total weight of water on top of a nuclear submarine at a depth of 185Â m if its (horizontal cross-sectional) hull area is 3200Â m2.

In atmospheres, what pressure would a diver experience at this depth? Do you think that occupants of a damaged submarine at this depth could escape without special equipment?

I have no idea how to start or solve this problem. Thanks for the help!
