So for the swimming pool question i was just wondering whether you still add the extra force of 3000N to the pressure equation?????

At the point when it should progress to Hydraulic Press, it reverts to the begining of the lecture or the video.

Fluids: Statics

  • Density is the mass per unit volume: Density = Mass/Volume.
  • If a force F acts on a surface of area A, the pressure P on the surface is P = F/A.
  • The pressure in a fluid at a depth h is P = P at the surface + (fluid density)gh.
  • If an object is placed in a fluid, such as water, the fluid exerts an upward force on the object; this force is known as the buoyant force.
  • Archimedes principle: The buoyant force acting on an object in a fluid is equal to the weight of fluid displaced by the object.
