Fluids – Notes
Pressure is the amount of force acting on a unit surface area.
Pressure is calculated by dividing force with area.
Like solids, all fluids exert pressure.
Matter that has a tendency to flow is termed as a fluid.
Dams can break down due to the force that is caused from the pressure of the water they contain.
Liquids exert equal pressure on all the sides of a container.
The pressure exerted by a liquid increases with the increase in the height of the liquid column.
The thick blanket of air that covers the earth is termed atmosphere.
