  1. Assume that p0 is 1 atm and that the density of water is 1000kg/m^3. Stress = force / area. The force applied is evenly distributed as it is a hemisphere and the curved surface area is 2piR^2 at h = 2R/3 and h = R for a hemisphere. The maximum applied compressive load will be at a depth of rgh where r = 1000kg/m^3, g = 9.81m/s^2 and h = 2R/3
