Students will learn about pressure and solving pressure problems in the context of fluids.
Discusses pressure, Pascals, the method of calculating pressure in a fluid, and the fact that the fluid pressure at a particular point in a fluid is the same in all directions.
Explains how pressure is used in hydraulic presses to allow people to lift very heavy objects.
Reviews the relationship between pressure and depth and calculations involving pressure applied by mass.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Pressure in Fluids.
This is an activity for students to complete before and after reading the Pressure in Fluids Concept.
Learn how the application of Pascal's principle allows us to lift 1000 lb objects.
Explore why the pressure under water increases the deeper you go.
This study guide gives a brief overview of the properties of fluids: pressure, Pascal's law, Archimedes' principle, the continuity of fluid flow, Bernoulli's equation and conservation of energy, surface tension, viscosity, and turbulence.
