Does decreasing pipe diameter increase water pressure?
No. Pascal's Principle states that a pressure applied to a fluid system at rest is felt throughout the entire system. This means that, regardless of pipe diameter, city pressure is felt everywhere. Decreasing pipe diameter will only reduce the flow rate of the water, due to more head loss when the water moves.

Pressure increases as depth increases.
Yes and no, provided the pressure is kept constant, what appears to be more pressure is actually more volume. it appears to be more pressure, but it is an optical illusion, pu…t a pressure gauge and be amazed.
Increase. For every 2.31 feet in depth of water the pressure will go up 1 psi and the gas passing from the lungs to the blood has to come to an equilibrium with it. That is wh…y oxygen in breathing tanks must be adjusted for the depth one goes to.
Static pressure is .434 X height. Example 10 ft x .434 4.34 PSI to prove take 2.31 PSI x 4.34. To find FORCE to need to calculate the diameter of the piping and the height a…nd then the weight of the water inside the pipe
Water pressure increases with increase of depth.
Assuming that the pressure remains at a constant, reducing the diameter of the pipe will increase the water flow. On the contrary, increasing the diameter would cause the wate…r to flow at a much slower rate.
There isn't one. Pressure in a piping system will be determined by the pump, or head of water if it is a gravity feed system.
well it depends it could but for it to make a difference you will need more water pressure.
That depends where the regulator is fitted.
The smaller the pipe and the more turns, the more resistance to the flow of water.
cause ur incrising presure by presuring the pipe
Decreasing the pipe diameter for the same flow volume increases the flow rate and therefore reduces the pressure of the gas by Bernoulli's principle.
Head loss will decrease
