The Mariana trench is located in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of about 11900 m below the surface of the water. The density of seawater is 1025 kg/m3.

(a) If an underwater vehicle were to explore such a depth, what force would the water exert on the vehicle's observation window (radius = 0.10 m)?

(b) For comparison, determine the weight of a jetliner whose mass is 1.5 10^5 kg.

Pressure Variations and Ocean Exploration

How do the pressure variations with depth affect the ability to explore the ocean? How does it affect scuba diving and submarines? If you explain it to me and also if you give me internet site or reference book I would learn more.

Thanks for your help.
