FM-1849-04 Hydrostatic Pressure

This apparatus shows the hydrostatic pressure in liquids at rest. The weight of fluids at rest causes a pressure that is known as hydrostatic pressure. This pressure acts on any area that is in communication with the fluid, exerting a force that is proportional to the size of the area.
