# Pascal's Law

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

\(\large{ \Delta p }\) = pressure differential, hydrostatic pressure between two points | \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) | \(\large{Pa}\) |

\(\large{ \rho }\) (Greek symbol rho) = density | \(\large{\frac{lbm}{ft^3}}\) | \(\large{\frac{kg}{m^3}}\) |

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration | \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec^2}}\) | \(\large{\frac{m}{s^2}}\) |

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