Hydrostatic Pressure

On board of the orbiting space shuttle is a container filled with liquid water (density = 1000 kg/m3) to a height of 2 m. The air pressure above the water is 10 kPa. The rotation of the space shuttle induces an artificial gravity of 1 m/s2 directed from the top towards the bottom of the container. What is the pressure at the bottom of the tank ?
