# Pascal's Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Pascal'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
