ZIMSEC O Level Combined Science Notes: Pressure in liquids and the manometer

  • Gravity pulls a liquid down into its container
  • The liquid in turn exerts a pressure on the container
  • The pressure of a liquid at a certain depth is equal in all directions
  • The pressure of a liquid in a container increases with depth
  • This means in a container […]

 ZIMSEC O Level Combined Science Notes: The concept of pressure
  • Pressure is the force acting over an area
  • In such pressure is usually the force per unit area exerted by a fluid/gas
  • over a surface with which it is in contact
  • \text{Pressure=} \dfrac{Force}{Area}
  • If a big force is exerted over a small area it results high pressure
  • An example […]
