If the pressure in the esophagus is $-2.00 \mathrm{mm}$ Hg while that in the stomach is $+20.0 \mathrm{mm} \mathrm{Hg},$ to what height could stomach fluid rise in the esophagus, assuming a density of 1.10 $\mathrm{g} / \mathrm{mL} ?$ (This movement will not occur if the muscle closing the lower end of the esophagus is working properly.)

$h=22.2 \mathrm{cm}$

so the increase in pressure due to a height difference would be equaling the height difference times the density times G and so we can find the height difference is to be equal to the pressure difference divided by the acceleration due to gravity times a row, the density and so we can find the pressure difference. We know the pressure difference is going to be equaling 2 20 millimetres of mercury minus negative two millimetres of mercury and so the pressure difference would be equaling. 22 millimeters of rectory multiplied, 100 multiplied by 133 newtons per square meter per millimeter of mercury. And so we find that the pressure difference is equaling 2926 Newtons per square meter. And then we can find essentially the height difference, which would be the height difference between the stomach and the and the esophagus. This would be the pressure difference. 2926 Newtons per square meter, divided by 1100 kilograms per cubic meter multiplied by 9.8 meters per second squared and we find the height difference to be 0.271 meters. This would be our final answer that is tthe e end of the solution. Thank you for once
