How much pressure is needed in ground-based water pipes to pump water up to the restaurant on the top floor of the World Trade Center, 410m above the ground ? 2. Cadir is basting a roast turkey with a meat baster that creates a pressure of 9.980x10^4 Pa when the plastic bulb is squeezed and released. If turkey juice rises 0.0900m up the tube of the baster, what is the density of the juice ? 3. A 5450m^3 blimp circles Fenway Park during the World Series, suspended in Earth's 1.21kg/m^3 atmosphere. The density of the helium in the blimp is 0.178kg/m^3. a) What is the buoyant force that suspends the blimp in the air ? b) How much does this buoyant force compare to the blimp's weight ? c) How much weight, in addition to the helium, can the blimp carry and still continue to maintain a constant altitude ? Please show formulas and explain how to solve.
