MATH Party; How does the pressure against the side of a pool near the bottom relate to the pressure at the bottom with uniform depth of 2.0m? Mathematically compute the absolute pressure given the dimensions 20 m x 10 m whose uniform depth is 2.0 m?

    Hydrostatic pressure is uniform in all directions at a given depth. Judge from your course context to interpret "absolute" pressure to mean hydrostatic pressure only, or in addition to air pressure at the surface of the liquid.

    So far I got the absolute pressure of 1.2*10^5 Pa

    Now that I have the absolute pressure 1.2*10^5 Pa I need to calculate the pressure acting on the side near the bottom. I think it's the same.

    Yes, it's the same. "Hydrostatic pressure is uniform in all directions at a given depth."
