nothing but a dozen eggs (44 g each). A quick measurement shows that the

inside of the refrigerator is 1 m by 0.6 m by 0.75 m. Is the weight of the air in

your refrigerator (i) much less than, (ii) about the same as, or (iii) much more

than the weight of the eggs?

Discussion At first it might seem that the "thin air" in the refrigerator weighs

practically nothing compared with a carton full of eggs. A brief calculation

shows this is not the case. For the eggs, we have

meggs = 12(44 g ) = 0. 528 kg

For the air,

Thus, the air, at 1.28 lb, actually weighs slightly more than the eggs, at 1.17 lb!

Answer: (ii) The air and the eggs weigh about the same.

Find the pressure exerted on the skin of a balloon if you press with a force of 2.1 N using (a) your finger or (b) a needle.

Assume the area of your fingertip is 104 m2, and the area of the needle tip is 2.5 x 107 m2. (c) Find the minimum force

necessary to pop the balloon with the needle, given that the balloon pops with a pressure of 3 x 105 N/m2.

Picture the Problem The same force is applied in either

case. The difference is the area over which the force is

spread.

Strategy (a), (b) Equation 16-2 can be used to find the

pressure, given the force and area.

(c) Use Equation 16-2 to solve for the force corresponding to

a given pressure and area.

Exercise 1 Find the force exerted on the palm of your hand by atmospheric

pressure. Assume your palm measures 8 cm by 10 cm.

Solution Applying Equations 16-3 and 16-2 we find

F = P at A = (1.01 10 Pa )(0.08 m)(0.1 m)= 808 N

Thus, the atmosphere pushes on the palm of your hand with a force of

approximately 182 pounds! Of course, it also pushes on the back of your

hand with essentially the same force, but in the opposite direction.

Estimate the gauge pressure in a basketball by pushing down on it and noting the area of contact it makes with the surface

on which it rests.

contact.

Suppose, for example, that we push down with a moderate

force of 22 N (about 5 lb). The circular area of contact will

probably have a diameter of about 2 centimeters. This can

be verified by carrying out the experiment. Thus, given F =

22 N and A = (d/2)2 we can find the gauge pressure.

Remarks Given that 1.01 x 105 Pa = 14.7 lb/in2 it follows that Pg = 7 x 104 Pa = 10 lb/in2. Thus, a basketball will typically

have a gauge pressure in the neighborhood of 10 lb/in2, and hence a total pressure inside the ball of about 24.7 lb/in2.

Practice Problem What is the diameter of the circular area of contact if a basketball with a 10 lb/in2 gauge pressure is

pushed down with a force of 44 N (about 10 lb)?

Conceptual Checkpoint 2 One day while swimming below the surface of the

ocean you let out a small bubble of air. As the bubble rises toward the

surface, does its diameter (i) increase, (ii) decrease, or (iii) stay the same?

What happens to the size of the bubble?

Answer: (i) The diameter of the bubble increases.

A U-shaped tube is filled mostly with water, but a small amount of vegetable oil has been added to one side, as shown in the

sketch. The density of the water is 1000 kg/m3, and the density of the vegetable oil is 920 kg/m3. If the depth of the oil is 5

cm, what is the difference in level h between the top of the oil on one side of the U and the top of the water on the other

side?

finger into the water, without touching the flask, does the reading on the scale

Does dipping a finger change the scale reading?

dipped into the water. By Newton's third law, the water experiences an equal

and opposite reaction force acting downward. This downward force is

transmitted to the scale, which in turn gives a higher reading.

Another way to look at this result is to note that when you dip your finger

into the water, its depth increases. This results in a greater pressure at the

bottom of the flask, and hence a greater downward force on the flask. The

scale reads this increased downward force.

Answer: (i) The reading on the scale increases.

A 104 m3 metal block with a mass of 0.786 kg hangs from a fish scale. A 0.1 kg flask holding 4.4 kg of water rests on a

kitchen scale. What are the readings on the two scales when the block is fully immersed in the water?

Picture the Problem The two scales, flask, water, and block

are shown in the sketch. We expect the upper scale to read

less than the weight of the block, and the lower scale to read

more than the weight of the flask + water.

Strategy As in Conceptual Checkpoint 3, the water exerts an

upward buoyant force on the block, and a reaction force acts

downward on the flask and water. Thus, we start by

calculating the buoyant force exerted on the block this is

just the weight of an equivalent volume of water. As we can

see from the free-body diagrams, the buoyant force is

subtracted from the weight of the block, and added to the

weight of the flask and water.

Remarks Note that the sum of the readings on the two scales is the total weight of the block + water + flask, as expected.

Practice Problem Find the readings on the two scales if the block's volume is 2 x 104 m3.

[Fupper = 5.75 N, Flower = 46.1 N. In this case, the buoyant force supports more of the block's weight, and adds to the weight

supported by the lower scale.] Some related homework problems

What percentage of a floating chunk of ice projects above the level of the water? Assume a density of 917 kg/m3 for the ice,

and 1000 kg/m3 for the water.

Picture the Problem Our sketch shows the ice, with density

s, floating in the water, with density f.

the fraction of the total volume of the ice, Vs, that is

submerged is Vsub/Vs = s/f. Hence the fraction that is

above the water is 1 Vsub/Vs = 1 s/f. Multiplying this

fraction by 100 yields the percentage above water.

floating ice cube. When the ice melts, which of the following occurs? (i) Water

overflows the cup, (ii) the water level decreases, or (iii) the water level

remains the same.

What happens to water level when the ice melts?

?

Discussion Since the ice cube floats, it displaces a volume of water equal to

its weight. But when it melts, it becomes water, and its weight is the same.

Hence, the melted water fills exactly the same volume that the ice cube

displaced when floating. As a result, the water level is unchanged.

Answer: (iii) The water level remains the same.

floating ice cube. Resting on top the ice cube is a small pebble. When the ice

melts, which of the following occurs? (i) Water overflows the cup, (ii) the

water level decreases, or (iii) the water level remains the same.

What happens to water level when the ice melts?

?

Discussion We know from the previous Conceptual Checkpoint that the ice

itself makes no difference to the water level. As for the pebble, when it floats

on the ice it displaces an amount of water equal to its weight. When the ice

melts the pebble drops to the bottom of the cup, where it displaces a volume

of water equal to its own volume. Since the volume of the pebble is less that

the volume of water with the same weight, we conclude that less water is

displaced after the ice melts. Hence, the water level decreases.

Answer: (ii) The water level decreases.
