Pressure in a Fluid Fluid pressure is the pressure exerted by a fluid at any point within the body of a fluid and the walls of confining vessel. Where does this pressure come from ? 1. The weight of the fluid (gravity) – liquid 2. Collisions among the constituents (atoms and molecules) and between the constituents and the walls of the confining vessel – gas

Atmospheric Pressure • Atmospheric pressure at any location on earth ` s surface is due to the weight of the air above that location. • Standard atmospheric pressure (P 0 ) is P 0 = 1.01 × 10 5 N/m 2 or Pa making air pressure visible: (barometer) video
