1
Measuring Fluid Pressure

2
Sample data: Alcohol Height (m)Pressure (Pa)

3

4
Slope of Pressure vs height Slope = rise/run = Pressure/height Pa = N = kg m = kg m m m 2 m m 3 sec 2 m 3 sec 2 kg/m 3 = density = ρ m/sec 2 = acceleration

5
Best fit equation = slope Alcohol = x Y= mx + b Pressure = h + b ( b can be disregarded. When pressure = 0 then height would = 0)

6
Pressure vs height Pressure (Pa) Height (m) Glycerin Salt water Fresh water Alcohol

7
Pressure vs density using the best fit lines LiquidDensity (ρ) Kg/m 3 Best fit equation Equation at 0.4 m Alcohol h2830 Freshwater h3924 Saltwater h4033 Glycerin h5415

9
Pressure is proportional to height P α h and P α ρ So therefore: P α ρ h × some constant C P = C ρ h

10
C = P = Pa = N/m 2 * m 3 ρ h kg/m 3 * m kg * m = kg * m * m 3 m 2 * kg * m * sec 2 C = m/ sec 2

11
Finding C (using data for seawater) P = C ρ h C = P = 1 P ρ h ρ h C = 1 * C = 9.81 m/sec 2 Slope Trend line formula
