I kinda know the answer but I want to be sure. How can I calculate the pressure exerted by 1 km of water ? I know pressure = density X gravity acceleration X depth. So pressure must be equal to: 1000 kg/m3 X 9.8 m/s^2 X 1000 m = 9,800,000 kg/m/s^2? Right? This will be equal to 9,800,000 pascal? I wanna be sure the units are right.
