sciencephysics# What is the formula used to find the pressure due to a column of liquid?

Last Updated: 9th October, 2021

**density**ρ is given by the hydrostatic pressure equation p = ρgh, where g is the gravitational acceleration.

**Click to see full answer**.

People also ask, how do you find the pressure exerted by a column of liquid?

To **calculate fluid pressure**, use the **formula** p × g × h = **fluid pressure**, where p is the density of the **liquid**, g is the acceleration of gravity, and h is the height of the **fluid**. Multiply the variables and take the product of the three to solve the equation.

Subsequently, question is, what is the formula for the pressure at any depth in a liquid? A: The **pressure** at the bottom of the **liquid** is calculated as P1 + rgM, where P1 is the **pressure** above the **liquid** (in Pascals), r is the density of the **liquid** (in kilograms/meter^3), g is the earth's gravitational acceleration constant (9.80 meters/second^2), and M is the vertical **depth** of the **liquid** (in meters).

One may also ask, what is the formula used to calculate pressure?

The formula to measure pressure is Pressure equals **force** in pounds over the area in square inch. The written abbreviated formula is P= F/A. By looking at the formula one can see that top obtain the pressure on an object, one must divide the the **force** by the area of an object.

How do you measure liquid pressure?

Instruments used to **measure** and display **pressure** in an integral unit are called **pressure** meters or **pressure** gauges or vacuum gauges. A manometer is a good example, as it uses the surface area and weight of a column of **liquid** to both **measure** and indicate **pressure**.
