Pressure in Fluids

Fluid pressure is exerted on the surface of an object in a liquid. This pressure causes upthrust . An object placed in a liquid will begin to sink. As it sinks, the liquid pressure on it increases and so the upthrust increases.

In this tutorial you will learn how to calculate the pressure on an object in a fluid at a known depth.

The equation is written like this:

$P = { \text h \; \text x \; \text p \; \text x \; \text g}$
