Pascal's Law

pascals lawPascal's law states that the increase in pressure is uniformly applied in all directions in a confined fluid.

 

Pascal's Law formula

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

Where:

\(\large{ \Delta p }\) = pressure differential, hydrostatic pressure between two points

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) = density

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

\(\large{ h }\) = height of liquid column
