# Solution: 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?

###### Problem

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?

###### Solution

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.

where:

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
