In UrbanaChapter 11,Preflight
You buy a bag of potato chips in Urbana Illinois and forget them (un-opened) under the seat of your car. You drive out to Denver Colorado to visit a friend for Thanksgiving, and when you get there you discover the lost bag of chips. The odd thing you notice right away is that the bag seems to have inflated like a balloon (i.e. it seems much more round and bouncy than when you bought it). How can you explain this ??
Due to the change in height, the air is much thinner in Denver. Thus, there is less pressure on the outside of the bag of chips in Denver, so the bag seems to inflate because the air pressure on the inside is greater than on the outside.
p2=patmPressure and DepthBarometer: a way to measure atomospheric pressure
Suppose you have a barometer with mercury and a barometer with water. How does the height hwater compare with the height hmercury?
1. hwater is much larger than hmercury
2. hwater is a little larger than hmercury
3. hwater is a little smaller than hmercury
4. hwater is much smaller than hmercury
water is much less dense than mercury, so the same amount of pressure will move the water farther up the column.
Is it possible to stand on the roof of a five story (50 foot) tall house and drink, using a straw, from a glass on the ground?
Even if a person could completely remove all of the air from the straw, the height to which the outside air pressure moves the water up the straw would not be high enough for the person to drink the water.
Note: Everything we do assumes fluid is non-viscous and incompressible.
Suppose you float a large ice-cube in a glass of water, and that after you place the ice in the glass the level of the water is at the very brim. When the ice melts, the level of the water in the glass will:
1. Go up, causing the water to spill out of the glass.
2. Go down.
3. Stay the same.
B = W gVdisplaced
W = ice gVice W gV
Must be same!
Tub of water + ship

Which weighs more:
1. A large bathtub filled to the brim with water.
2. A large bathtub filled to the brim with water with a battle-ship floating in it.
3. They will weigh the same.
Weight of ship = Buoyant force =
Weight of displaced water
A stream of water gets narrower as it falls from a faucet (try it & see).
Explain this phenomenon using the equation of continuity
hmm, gravity stretches it out
The water's velocity is increasing as it flows down, so in order to compensate for the increase in velocity, the area must be decreased because the density*area*speed must be conserved
First off the mass of the water is conserved, and water is a incompressible fluid. The equation of continuity states that A1V1= A2V2. We know that the velocity or V2 will be increasing due to gravity so in order for the equation to work the area must decrease or get narrower.
A large bucket full of water has two drains. One is a hole in the side of the bucket at the bottom, and the other is a pipe coming out of the bucket near the top, which bent is downward such that the bottom of this pipe even with the other hole, like in the picture below:
Though which drain is the water spraying out with the highest speed?
1. The hole
2. The pipe
The speed of the water depends on the pressure at the opening through which the water flows, which depends on the depth of the opening from the surface of the water. Since both the hole and the opening of the downspout are at [the same] depth below the surface, water from the two will be discharged with the same speeds.
