imagine a cube, 1 meter on a side. .. 1 liter = 1000 cm 3 = 1000 ml 1 m 3 = 1000 liter 1 cm 3 = 1 ml 1 kg H 2 O 1000 kg H 2 O

Density we can think of density as the amount of something per unit volume mass density = kg/m 3 usually use Greek symbol rho = ρ (not p !) density of water ρ water = 1000 kg / m 3

Pressure weight = force of gravity = mg (g = 9.8 m/s 2 ) pressure = force per unit area what is the pressure at the bottom of our cubic meter of water? weight of cube (1000 kg)(9.8 m/s 2 ) = 9800 N pressure on bottom 9800 N/m 2 = 9800 Pa

Pressure what if we just had a narrow column? Would the pressure at the bottom be the same?

Fluid Pressure pressure is force per unit area in a fluid, pressure pushes in all directions pressure varies with depth in a gravitational field: need to hold up column of fluid above! force = weight = mg = ρ Adg pressure = force/area = ρ gd

Atmospheric Pressure atmospheric pressure at sea level: 1 atm = 101325 Pa also measured in bars (1 bar = 1 atm), 760 mmHg = 760 torr, . .. In our discussions always remember that
