# What is the relationship between liquid pressure and depth of a liquid?

###### Answered 2012-04-10 05:52:06

As the depth of the fluid increases, the pressure increases. To explain this mathematicaly you consider the Sg of the fluid times the height of the column multiplied by gravity will give you the pressure at the base of the column

The greater the depth, the greater the pressure.

the pressure of liquid is HDG where H=depth D=density g= acceleration due to gravity thus depth= pressure/density*acceleration due to gravity

Liquid pressure depends on depth. It can be calculated from liquid density times depth.

If you were submerged in a liquid more dense than water, the pressure would be correspondingly greater. The pressure due to a liquid is precisely equal to the product of weight density and depth. liquid pressure = weight density x depth. also the pressure a liquid exerts against the sides and bottom of a container depends on the density and the depth of the liquid.

The lower the depth, the more psi. It falls back to the base weight of the liquid. For example a foot of water is equal to .433 psi. Every additional foot of depth is another .433 psi of downward force.

The Pressure and depth of a liquid are related by the equation P= dgh., where d is the density, g is the acceleration due to gravity and h is the depth. This value gives us the gauge pressure that is the excess above the atmospheric pressure.This is explainable with Archimedes principal giving the pressure at the base of the column with the formula Sg x H x G

At greater depth, there is more liquid above you, and that liquid has weight and exerts pressure.

The depth of water is directly related to the pressure caused by it. It is caused by gravitational force on the amount of water column in the depth.

Pressure due to liquid is given by the expression h d g. Here h is the depth of the point in the liquid. So pressure increases with the depth as it is directly proportional to the depth.

The pressure (force per cm2) at a particular depth is the weight of water above that square centimetre.

liquid pressure depends upon the depth of fluid. It is observed that greater the depth larger will be the pressure of liquid on its surrounding

the pressure is the weight density of the liquid times it depth so twice the depth is twice the pressure, etc. It acts in all directions

The pressure exerted by a liquid is the same in all directions at the same depth The pressure exerted by a liquid increases with increase in depth. The pressure exerted by a liquid is perpendicular to the surface of the container. The pressure exerted by a liquid is independent of the size or shape of the container.

In general, the pressure increases more or less linearly as a function of depth. For example, in the case of water, the pressure increases by approximately 1 bar (which is also approximately 1 atmosphere) every 10 meters you go down.

At greater depth, the pressure increases, due to the weight of the liquid above.

The deeper you go, the more air is above you ... thus higher air pressure.

Atmospheric pressure Density of the liquid Gravitional field strength in the area the liquid is in The distance from the surface of the liquid i.e. depth Pressure in a liquid=Atmospheric pressure +(Depth X Gravity strength X Density) There might be more I don't know about
