Gauge and absolute pressures
Pressure gauges measure the pressure above and below atmospheric (or barometric) pressure. Patm = P0 = 1 atm = kPa = 1013 hPa = 1013 millibars = 760 torr = 760 mmHg Gauge pressure Pg Absolute pressure P P = Pg + Patm 200 100 300 400

Impact of a molecule on the wall of the container exerts a force on the wall and the wall exerts a force on the molecule. Many impacts occur each second and the total average force per unit area is called the pressure.

The pressure in a fluid can be defined as the ratio of the force exerted by the fluid to the area over which it is exerted. To get the pressure at a point you need to take the limit as this area approaches zero. Because of the weak cohesive forces between the molecules of the fluid, the only force that can be applied by the fluid on a submerged object is one that tends to compress it. This means the force of the fluid acts perpendicular to the surface of the object at any point.

ph ph p0’ p0 p0 (0,0) (0,0) h h Linear relationship between pressure and depth. If the pressure at the surface increases then the pressure at a depth h also increases by the same amount.

h The pressure exerted by a static fluid depends only upon the depth of the fluid, the density of the fluid, and the acceleration of gravity ph = p0 + r g h Static pressure does not depend upon mass or surface area of liquid and the shape of container due to pressure exerted by walls.

A sharp blow to the front of an eyeball will produce a higher pressure which is transmitted to the opposite side

Increased pressure transmitted down spinal cord
Another example is the pressure exerted by a growing tumour. This increased pressure is transmitted down the spinal column via the cerebrospinal fluid, and may be detected lower in the spinal cavity which is less invasive than trying to detect it in the brain itself. tumor Increased pressure transmitted down spinal cord

Partially submerged floating

Floating: partially submerged
Weight of object < weight of fluid that can be displaced by object Volume of displaced water < volume of object Weight of liquid displaced by partially submerged object = weight of object Water displaced

Floating: fully submerged
Weight of object = weight of fluid displaced by object Volume of displaced water = volume of object Water displaced Static equilibrium Some fish can remain at a fixed depth without moving by storing gas in their bladder. Submarines take on or discharge water into their ballast tanks to rise or dive

Sinks Weight of object > weight of fluid displaced by object
Volume of displaced water = volume of object Water displaced

Volume of water displaced
A steel ship can encompass a great deal of empty space and so have a large volume and a relatively small density. Volume of water displaced Weight of ship = weight of water displaced

Weight of ship = weight of water displaced
The buoyant force is equal to the weight of the water displaced, not the water actually present. The missing water that would have filled the volume of the ship below the waterline is the displaced fluid. Volume of water displaced. This volume is not necessarily the volume present. Weight of ship = weight of water displaced

Golf ball with backspin (rotating CW) with air stream going from left to right. Note that the air stream is deflected downward with a downward force. The reaction force on the ball is upward. This gives the longer hang time and hence distance carried.
