### What is ferrostatic pressure?

The pressure exerted by the pressure head of liquid steel in a container at bottom surface of the container is known as ferro static pressure.

### How does pressure exerted by a solid object on a surface differ from pressure exerted within a liquid or a gas?

The pressure exerted by a solid object is in only one direction.

### How does pressure exerted by a solid object on a surface differ from pressure exerted within a gas or liquid?

The pressure exerted by a solid object is in only one direction.

### Why is it important to have the bulb of a thermometer submerged in liquid without touching the sides or bottom of the beaker?

The sides or bottom of the beaker will likely be at a significantly different temperature than the liquid.

### Why is it not allowed to let the bulb of the temperature touch the bottom nor sides of the beaker that contains your liquid measuring the temperature?

The bottom and sides of the beaker will be hotter than the liquid inside.

### Why was it important not to let the thermometer rest on the bottom of the breaker?

to get an accurate reading of the liquid inside the beaker, the thermometer should not rest on the bottom of the beaker.

### How does pressure exerted by a liquid increase with depth?

It increases linearly, assuming the liquid is incompressible.

### How does the pressure exerted by a liquid vary with direction and depth?

The pressure exerted by a liquid increases with depth. This is known as hydrostatic pressure and is directly proportional to the density of the liquid. The pressure variation with direction is isotropic, meaning it is the same regardless of the direction taken in the liquid.

### How does pressure exerted by a solid object on a surface differ from pressure exerted within a liquid or gas?

In a liquid or gas the pressure at any given point is the same in all directions. In a solid the pressure can vary depending on direction. So, for example, the vertical pressure can be greater or less than the horizontal pressure.

### What kind of pressure of a liquid is the pressure exerted at equilibrium and is dependent on temperature only?

Vapour pressure ; yes

### Explain hydrostatic pressure?

Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure exerted by a liquid when it is at rest. It is directly proportional to the height of a liquid column of uniform density.

### What can a boil be defined as?

Boiling, a type of phase transition, is the rapid vaporization of a liquid, which typically occurs when a liquid is heated to its boiling point, the temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid is equal to the pressure exerted on the liquid by the surrounding environmental pressure.
