    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 185 m if its (horizontal cross-sectional) hull area is 3200 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!
