Pressure in fluids and Pascal’s principle (1) pressure P : , A F P = units: (a) N/m 2 or Pa , 1 Pa = 1 N/m2, b) atm , 1 atm = 1.013 × 10 5 Pa, 1 bar = 1.000 × 10 5 Pa, (1 atm = 1.013 bar) c) bar , e) torr , 1 torr = 1 mm-Hg = 133 Pa. 1 atm = 760 mm-Hg, d) mm-Hg , (2) pressure P in fluids: (i) fluids exerts pressure in all directions. (ii) the pressure P in fluids depends on ρ fluid (fluid density) and h (depth) – (at the same depth, the pressure is the same) F A , 0 Ahg g m A P PA F fluid fluid ρ = = - = , 0 gh P P fluid ρ + = , 0 gh P P fluid ρ + = definition: the force F over the contact area A . h P = P 0 + ρ fluid gh fluid air P 0 Note: for water, ρ H2O = 1.0 × 10 3 kg/m 3 , if h = 10 m , ρ H2O gh = 1.0 × 10 3 × 9.8 × 10 1 atm. -- hi, this means each 10 m in depth under water adds a pressure of ~ 1 atm ! So, if d = 0 , P 0 is the pressure outside the fluid, and h counts from the surface of the fluid, i.e. h is the depth under the fluid ---

4 Application examples Example 1: (3) Pascal’s principle: a change in pressure to a confined fluid applies throughout everywhere in the fluid by the same amount. Example 2: Example 3: . 0 gh P P P P fluid B A ρ + = = = Solution: The car is lifted up in a workshop for repair. The left side cylinder tubing has a radius r 1 = 5 cm , and the right side tubing r 2 = 25 cm . Oil is filled between. If the car is 4000 lb , how much is the force F 1 on the left side needed to lift it up ? Solution: , 2 1 P P = (the oil level on both sides is essentially the same, negligible in difference) , 2 2 1 1 A F A F = , 25 1 25 5 2 2 2 1 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 = = = = = r r r r A A F F π π . 160 25 / 4000 25 / 2 1 lb F F = = = -- hi, the force needed to lift up a car is really small ! This is a water dam. How much is the force from the water (let’s not consider the speed of the water flow for simplicity)?

It is filled with liquid (density ρ fluid ).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
