Step 1

1 of 3Let's split the figure into two parts, the left side where the pressure is the sum of pressures of all three materials, and the right side where the pressure depends only on the crust.

According to Bernoulli's equation, $p=p_0+\rho\cdot g\cdot h+\frac{1}{2}\cdot \rho v^2$, for $v=0$, $d_c=12\text{km}$ and $d=20\text{km}$ we have

$\begin{aligned} &p_l=p_0+\rho_w\cdot g\cdot h+\rho_m\cdot g\cdot (d-h-d_c)+\rho_c\cdot g\cdot d_c\\ &p_r=p_0+\rho_c\cdot g\cdot d \end{aligned}$
