“How does the pressure of a liquid vary with height?”

 

Liquids are famous for their permeable structure, such that you can insert an object at any point inside it. However, depending on which part of the height you insert it, it will experience a different pressure. So how can we quantify this pressure variation with height? Well, if we investigate empirically, we will find out that this variation can be symbolically represented as P = rho*g*h, with P being the pressure, rho being the density, g being the gravitational acceleration, and h being the height.
