🤓 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.
P = hydrostatic pressure in pascals or kg/m•s2
ρ = density of the liquid in kg/m3
g = gravitational constant = 9.8 m/s2
h = height in meters
