1/13/12 Oregon State University PH 202, Lecture 3 2 Pressure Gauges Static pressure varies directly with the depth in an incompressible fluid (no matter the shape of the container). This makes it very handy to use in a pressure gauge , which measures pressure differences between two points, as indicated by a column of fluid. Most gauges measure pressure against the most convenient reference —atmospheric pressure: P abs. = P gauge + P atm. or: P P gauge = P atm. (If you don’t see the word “gauge” used, you may assume the pressure indicated is absolute pressure.)
