🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Rusakov's class at OAKLAND.

Suppose that a liquid is 12 times denser than water.

If you were to sip this liquid at sea level using a straw, what would be the maximum length of the straw?

We are being asked to calculate the **maximum height of a straw** if you were to sip a liquid that is **12 times denser than water at sea level**.

Recall: At **sea level**, the atmospheric pressure is 1 atm.

We can calculate for the **height** using the following formula.

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{\rho gh}}}$

where:

P = hydrostatic pressure in pascals or *kg/m•s ^{2}*

ρ = density of the liquid in *kg/m ^{3}*

g = gravitational constant = 9.8 *m/s ^{2}*

h = height in meters
