Motivation • Hydrostatic condition: zero fluid velocity Æ Pressure variation is due only to the weight of the fluid. – Pressure distribution in the atmosphere and the oceans – Design of manometer pressure instruments – Forces on submerged flat and curved surfaces – Buoyancy on a submerged body – Behavior of floating bodies • Fluid moving in rigid-body motion: e.g., a spinning tank of liquid • Pressure measurement instruments Roosevelt Dam in Arizona. Hydrostatic pressure, due to the weight of a standing fluid, can cause enormous forces and moments on large-scale structures such as a dam.
