P B =P A + ϒ h In some cases, all points on a horizontal surface in a static body of water are subjected to the same hydrostatic pressure. The following conditions need to be met to satisfy a surface of equal pressure: Abdelal

1. Points on the surface are all in the same liquid 2. Points are at the same elevation 3. The liquid containing the points must be connected. Abdelal

A pressure applied at any point in a liquid at rest is transmitted equally and undiminished in all directions to every other point in the liquid Abdelal

The diameters of cylindrical pistons A and B are 3cm and 20 cm respectively. The faces of the pistons are at the same elevation, and the intervening passages are filled with an incompressible hydraulic oil. A force P of 100 N is applied at the end of the level as shown. What weight W can the hydraulic jack support? Abdelal

A piezometer is a pressure measurement device, composed of a vertical tube, usually transparent in which a liquid rises in response to a positive gage pressure. Gage pressure at the center of the pipe = ϒ h Adv. : Simple, direct measurement Disadv .: Can’t be used with gas, Limited to low pressure Abdelal

Also pressure measurement devices, composed of a bent tube in the form of U that contains a fluid with a known specific gravity. Could be either : a) Open manometer or b) differential manometer Abdelal

    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.
