Goyal Brothers Pressure in Fluids Class-9 ICSE Physics Ch-4

Practice Problems 1.
Question 1.
Calculate pressure exerted by 0.8 m vertical length of alcohol of density 0.80 gcnr5 in SI units.
[Take g = 10 ms-2].
Vertical length of alcohol column = h = 0.8 m
Density of alcohol = ρ = 0.80 g cm -3 ρ = 0.80 x 1000 kgm-3 .
ρ = 800 kg m-3
Pressure = P = ?
p= hpg
P = 0.8 x 800 x 10
= 6400 Pa

Question 2.
What is the pressure exerted by 75 cm vertical column of mercury of density 13600 kgm-3 in SI units.
[Take g = 9.8 ms-2].
Vertical length of mercury column = h = 75 cm = 0.75 m
Density of mercury = p = 13600 kg m-3
Acceleration due to gravity = g = 9.8 ms-2
Pressure = P = ?
p= hpg
P = 0.75 x 13600×9.8
P = 99960 Pa

#### Practice Problems 2.

Question 1.
66640 Pa pressure is exerted by 0.50 m vertical column of a liquid. If g = 9.8 Nkg-1, calculate density of the liquid.
Pressure + P = 66640 Pa .
Vertical length of liquid column = h = 0.50 m
Acceleration due to gravity -g = 9.8 ms-2 Question 2.
What vertical height of water will exert pressure of 333200 Pa? Density of water is 1000 kgnr3 and g = 9.8 ms-2.
Vertical height of water = h = ?
Pressure due to water column = P = 333200 Pa Acceleration due to gravity = g = 9.8 ms-2 Question 3.
Pressure at bottom of sea at some particular place is 8968960 Pa. If density of sea water is 1040 kgm3 calculate the depth of sea. Take g = 9.8 ms-2. Neglect the pressure of the atmosphere.
Pressure at the bottom of the sea = P = 8968960 Pa Practice Problems 3.

Question 1.
Atmospheric pressure at sea level is 76 cm of mercury. Calculate the vertical height of air column exerting the above pressure. Assume the density of air 1.29 kgm-3 and that of mercury is 13600 kgm-3. Why the height calculated by you is far less than actual height of atmosphere? Question 2.
Calculate the equivalent height of mercury, which will exert as much pressure as 960 m of sea water of density 1040 kgm-3. Density of mercury is 13600 kgm-3.  #### Practice Problems 4.

Question 1.

The pressure of water on the ground floor, in a water pipe is 150000 Pa, whereas pressure on the fourth floor is 30000 Pa. Calculate height of fourth floor. Take g = 10 ms-2.
Pressure of water at fourth floor = P2 = 3000 Pa Let h be the height of fourth floor
Difference in pressure of water at ground floor and fourth floor
= P1 – P2 = 150000 – 30000
= 120000 Pa
Pressure of water due to height (h) = hρg
=> P1 – P2 = h p Question 2.        (Goyal Brothers Pressure in Fluids Class-9 ICSE Physics Ch-4)
The pressure of water on ground floor is 160000 Pa. Calculate the pressure at the fifth floor, at a height of 15 m.
Pressure of water at ground floor = P, = 160000 Pa
Pressure of water at fifth floor = P2 = ?
Height of fifth floor = h = 15 m
Density of water = ρ = 1000 kgm-3
Difference in pressure of water at ground and fifth floor
= P1 – P2
Pressure of water due to height (h) = hρg
= P1 – P2 = hρg
160000 -P2= 15 x 1000 x 10
P2= 160000-150000
P2 = 10000 Pa

#### Practice Problems 5.

Question 1.
(a)
The area of cross-sections of the pump plunger and press plunger of a hydraulic press are 0.02 m2 and 8 m2 respectively. If the hydraulic press overcomes a load of 800 kgf, calculate the force acting on pump plunger.
(b) If the mechanical advantage of the handle of pump plunger is 8, calculate the force applied at the end of the handle of pump plunger.
(a) Load on the press plunger = L = 800 kgf
Let the effort acting on the pump plunger = E
Area of cross-section of pump plunger = A1 = 0.02 m2
Area of cross-section of press plunger = A2 = 8 m2 (b) Question 2.
The radii of the press plunger and pump plunger are in ratio of 50 : 4. If an effort of 20 kgf acts on the pump plunger, calculate the maximum effort which the press plunger can over come.

Effort acting on the pump plunger – E = 20 kgf
Load acting on the press plunger = L = ?
So let radius of pump plunger = 5 Ox = R and radius of press plunger = Ax = r  (A) Objective Questions
