The pressure of a fluid generally increases with depth. This therefore means that at a specific depth the pressure of a fluid is constant.

Yes, pressure does increase as your depth increases in the water

True. Temperature and pressure both increase with increasing depth within the Earth.

"If you are 15 ft. under water, the pressure will be the same no matter how large the body of water is" is a true statements about fluid pressure.

To convert measured depth to true vertical depth, first write down the measured depth. You will have to map an X, Y, Z point from that calculation, as well as using the azimuth and inclination.

yes &lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt; Actually, the pressure outside the straw presses the fluid up into the straw.

False, air pressure goes down as altitude increases. Air acts like water in the sense that they are both fluids. If you are on the surface of the earth you are in the bottom of the fluid just like water the pressure is higher on the bottom. So when you increase altitude you are reaching the top of the fluid therefore decreasing pressure.

They don't. Fish that live at a high depth stay there for as long as the live, as they would explode when pressure dropped. The same is true for fish that live high up in the ocean: they would implode when pressure rises.

No, it is the DIFFERENCE between the true and atmospheric pressures.

Not so much spinning as pressure. The torque converter is full of fluid and true it does spin with the engine rpms. This spinning causes the fluid to be pushed through the tranny as the pressure of it opens various valves. If you have a clogged filter, it won't allow the proper flow of the fluid thus causing shift problems. That's about as simple an explanation I can give.

As the Pressure of the gas being measured increases the height of the fluid in the Manometer Tube increases. The reverse is also true. The graduations of the Manometer Tube gives you a reading of the Gas Pressure being measured.

True Vapor Pressure is the pressure of the vapor in equilibrium with the liquid at 100 F (it is equal to the bubble point pressure at 100 F).

Units of pressure ... in anything ... are (any unit of force) divided by (any unit of area). ADDED: True, but to be more specific, the standard units of pressure are the Pascal (Pa), the Bar (aka the "atmosphere") and the pound/in^2.

Every 10 metres of water adds 1 ATM, so a depth of 10 metres is 2 ATM (the atmosphere of pressure at the surface plus the pressure of 10 metres of water). 10 ATM is reached at 90 metres, or approximately 295 feet (10 metres is approximately 33 feet). (The 1atm/10m is true for salt water at 15C; actual pressure/depth depends on water - fresh Vs salt - and temperature, but 1atm/10m is a good guideline for most purposes.)

True Vapor Pressure is the pressure of the vapor in equilibrium with the liquid at 100 F (it is equal to the bubble point pressure at 100 F)

I just had the question "Every minute, about 1.5mL of fluid leaks out of the capillaries" on a true/false quiz and the answer was true.

Specific gravity is the ratio of the weight of the sample to the weight of the water. Where as true specific gravity is the ratio of the density of the material to the density of the water

True vapor pressure (TVP) is a measure of the volatility of petroleum distillate fuels. It is said to be the pressure of the vapor in equilibrium with the liquid at 100 F.

yes this is true. this is also why you can get stronger winds if the pressure gradient in the atmospshere is greater

Yes, and the strength of the force is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body.True

Tell them: "Love doesn't convey the depth of my feelings"- kind of a smart alecy answer, sorry, but it's true. you can also go into depth of what you personally believe love is and why you feel that way.
