Problem P. 4905. (February 2017)

P. 4905. A one-metre-long vertical glass tube with one side open end closed the other is pushed into some liquid, such that its open end is at its bottom. The closed end of the tube is held at the level of the surface of the liquid. It is observed that the liquid fills a 7.7 cm-long part of the tube. The ambient air pressure is 100 kPa.

What is the density of the liquid?

Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

\(\displaystyle \varrho=920~\frac{\rm kg}{\rm m^3}.\) (Ekkora például az étolaj sűrűsége.)
