Fluid pressure on Venus

The surface pressure on Venus is 92 atm, and the acceleration due to gravity there is 0.894g. In a future exploratory mission, an upright cylindrical tank of benzene is sealed at the top but still pressurized at 92 atm just above the benzene. The tank has a diameter of 1.67 m, and the benzene column is 10.00 m tall. Ignore any effects due to the very high temperature on Venus. What total force is exerted on the inside surface of the bottom of the tank?

Solution Preview

Total force on the inside surface of the bottom of the tank = Force due to the weight of the liquid column + Force due to the pressure on the top of the liquid column

Pressure on ...
