Could be a partial blockage in the supply lines to the faucet. Could also be a different size of supply line. The faucet valves may also need cleaning.

Voltage pushes current through a circuit. A good example of how this works would be water pressure and flow. your faucets at home as long as they are closed have water pressure on them but no flow. You open a faucett and the water starts flowing pushed by the pressure. The voltage is represented by the water pressure and the Current (amps) is represented by the water flow.

Why would there suddenly be no water coming out of the faucets?

There is no water, or water pressure reaching the faucet.

Does location matter for the density of water?

Yes. Density is affected by pressure and temperature. So of course, water from a hot spring would have different density than water in colder regions of the world. Also, water from different depths would have different densities.

Why would the hot water in the bathtub have no pressure but the cold water is fine There was a leak under the hot water handle We had the sellers get a plumber to fix it now no hot H20 pressure?

You can try following the water lines back to the water heater to make sure there is not a valve closed holding the water back that may have been forgotten after the repair. This being the case, I would be worried that the repair was not check to see if it was done correctly.If you have pressure on the hot water at other faucets in the home, then I would think this could be the problem.
