Fluid Pressure in a U-Tube
A U-tube is filled with water, and the two arms are capped.

The tube is cylindrical, and the right arm has twice the radius of the left arm. The caps have negligible mass, are watertight, and can freely slide up and down the tube. Part A A one-inch depth of sand is poured onto the cap on each arm.

to reestablish equilibrium, is the right cap higher, lower, or the same height as the left cap? Hint A.1 Pressure at the surface Hint not displayed Hint A.2 Evaluate the weight of the sand Hint not displayed Hint A.3 ANSWER: Evaluate the pressure applied by the sand Hint not displayed higher lower the same height Correct Although one inch of sand on the right cap is much heavier than one inch of sand on the left cap, the pressures exerted by the sand are the same on both caps. Since the pressures exerted by the sand are equal, the pressures at the base of each arm due to the water must be equal. This requires equal heights of water in the two arms.
