### Gauge pressure and absolute pressure?

Gauge pressure is what you get when you take the reading from
your tire pressure gauge. Absolute pressure is the pressure inside
your tires plus the atmospheric pressure, which is roughly; 14.7
psi, 101.3 kPa (kilo-Pascals), or one atmosphere. Absolute pressure
measures all of the pressure on your tires, inside and out, whereas
gauge simply measures the pressure inside the tire.

###### Asked in Physics

### Does absolute pressure in a liquid of constant density double when the depth is doubled?

No, it does not. (absolute pressure) = (Pressure Gauge) -
(Atmospheric pressure) ==>
(Pabs) = (density of liquid)(gravity)(depth or height) -
(Patm)
As you can see, atmospheric pressure is independent of the
height/depth. The atmospheric pressure will not double, restricting
absolute pressure from doubling.
However, the Gauge Pressure will double.
