Two identical containers are open at the top and are connected
at the bottom via a tube of negligible volume and a valve that is
closed. Both containers are filled initially to the same height of
1.00 m, one with water, the other with mercury, as the drawing
indicates. The valve is then opened. Water and mercury are
immiscible. Determine the fluid level in the left container when
equilibrium is reestablished.
