Fluid Pressure at Depth

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

The pressure exerted on a fluid depends only on the depth of the fluid.

Fluid PRESSURE at Depth FORMULA

\(\large{ p =  \rho   g    h  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ p }\) = fluid pressure

\(\large{ \rho }\)   (Greek symbol rho) = density of the fluid

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration

\(\large{ h }\) = heigh
