13.1 Fluid Pressure Because the theater seat exerts a supporting force over a larger area, it is more comfortable than the bicycle seat. 13.1 Fluid Pressure

Pressure How is pressure calculated? To calculate pressure, divide the force by the area over which the force acts. 13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure Pressure is the result of a force distributed

over an area. The unit of force is the newton (N). The unit of area is the square meter (m2). The SI unit of pressure is the pascal (Pa). A pascal is one newton per square meter (N/m2) 13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure If the area of a box touching the ground is 1.5

13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure in Fluids Water pressure increases as depth increases. The pressure in a fluid at any given depth is constant, and it is exerted equally in all directions.

13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure in Fluids A fluid is a substance that assumes the shape of its container. Both liquids and gases are fluids. Water, oil, gasoline, air, and helium are examples of fluids. 13.1 Fluid Pressure

Pressure in Fluids A.Particles in a liquid are tightly packed together but are able to slide past one another. 13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure in Fluids B.Particles in a gas are far apart and travel in straight lines until they collide with another

particle or object. 13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure in Fluids Water in a glass is in contact with the walls and bottom of the glass, and it exerts pressure on these surfaces. For a fluid that is not moving, depth and the type of fluid are the two factors that determine

the pressure the fluid exerts. 13.1 Fluid Pressure Pressure in Fluids Each vase holds a different amount of liquid. The liquid levels are all the same because pressure depends on depth, not amount. 13.1 Fluid Pressure

Planetary Atmospheres The layer of gases surrounding a planet is known as its atmosphere. All of the planets in our solar system have some form of atmosphere. The weight of an atmosphere creates atmospheric pressure at the planets surface.

given quantity of helium have the smallest volume? Answer: The helium-filled balloon would have the smallest volume on Venus because Venus has the greatest atmospheric pressure. 13.1 Fluid Pressure Air Pressure and the Atmosphere How does air pressure change with altitude?

Air pressure decreases as the altitude increases. 13.1 Fluid Pressure Air Pressure and the Atmosphere Earths atmosphere exerts pressure of about 101 kPa at sea level. Why aren't you crushed by air pressure?

13.1 Fluid Pressure Air Pressure and the Atmosphere Earths atmosphere exerts pressure of about 101 kPa at sea level. Why aren't you crushed by air pressure? The pressure inside your body balances the air pressure outside. The balanced forces cancel, resulting in a net force of zero.
