Measuring Fluid Pressure

Sample data: Alcohol Height (m)Pressure (Pa) 0.131000 0.262000 0.393000 0.524000 0.655000 0.786000

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

Best fit equation = slope Alcohol = 7692.3 x Y= mx + b Pressure = 7692.3 h + b ( b can be disregarded. When pressure = 0 then height would = 0)

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

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

Finding C (using data for seawater) P = C ρ h C = P = 1 P ρ h ρ h C = 1 * 10 075 1027 C = 9.81 m/sec 2 Slope Trend line formula
