CHARACTERISTICS OF

PRESSURE IN A LIQUID
The pressure in a liquid increases
with depth

The pressure of water is highest at the lowest point of the cylinder as the water
spurts out the furthest from this point
The pressure in a
liquid does not
depend on the
shape or size of the
container
The diameters and shapes of the tubes are
different. The pressure at the same depth is
the same since the water levels in each
tube is the same.
When the container is drilled with several identical holes
at the same height, water will spurt out at equal speeds to
reach equal distances from the circumference of the base.
The pressure in a
liquids acts in all
direction
If the thistle funnel, bent at different angles
is placed at the same depth y, the
manometer will indicate the same reading
h. A liquid exerts a pressure on every
surface in contact with it regardless which
way the surface is facing.
