The ratio of force to the area over which that force is distributed:
Pressure = force/area
Liquid pressure = weight density × depth
The net upward force that a fluid exerts on an immersed object.
An immersed body is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.
Principle of flotation
A floating object displaces a weight of fluid equal to its own weight.
The pressure applied to a motionless fluid confined in a container is transmitted undiminished throughout the fluid.
The tendency of the surface of a liquid to contract in area and thus to behave like a stretched elastic membrane.
The rise of a liquid in a fine, hollow tube or in a narrow space.
#1. An object more dense than the fluid in which it is immersed will sink.
#2. An object less dense than the fluid in which it is immersed will float.
#3. An object having a density equal to the density of the fluid in which it is immersed will neither sink nor float.
