I've been trying to calculate the amount of pressure on a wall of a rectangular structure, that is under sea watter.
For example a dam. I can't come to see any example to be able to locate the answer to my problem.
Sea Water density= 1.025 g/m3 Sea Water specific gravity= 1025.8 Kg/m3 Sea Water specific weight= 10100 N/m3 //wall structure is: base= 15000 m height= 10 m Area= 150,000 m
My questions are:
- Does the volume of the vessel make a diference on the wall's pressure?
- How much pressure do these messures exert?
I spent almost 8 hours researching information about hydrostatic pressure and viewing examples, but most of these explain about water on a dam's gate instead of the whole building itself
