Fluid Pressure. by Ron Kurtus (revised 8 May 2017) Fluid pressure is a measurement of the force per unit area on a object in the fluid or on the surface of a closed container. This pressure can be caused by gravity, acceleration, or by forces outside a closed container.

Introduction to Pressure in Fluid Mechanics . Pressure always acts inward normal to any surface (even imaginary surfaces as in a control volume). Pressure is a normal stress, and hence has dimensions of force per unit area, or {ML-1 T-2}. In the English system of units, pressure is expressed as "psi" or lbf/in 2.

Such conditions conform with principles of fluid statics. The pressure at any given point of a non-moving (static) fluid is called the hydrostatic pressure. Closed bodies of fluid are either "static", when the fluid is not moving, or "dynamic", when the fluid can move as in either a pipe or by compressing an air gap in a closed container.

The total pressure is the same as absolute pressure on pressure gauges readings, while the gauge pressure is the same as the fluid pressure alone, not including atmospheric pressure. P total = P atmosphere + P fluid. P total = P atmosphere + ( r * g * h ) A Pascal is the unit of pressure in the metric system. It represents 1 newton/m 2. Example ...

Magnus Effect The Magnus effect is an observable phenomenon that is commonly associated with a spinning object that drags air faster around one side, creating a difference in pressure that moves it in the direction of the lower-pressure side. It i...

To calculate fluid pressure, use the formula p × g × h = fluid pressure, where p is the density of the liquid, g is the acceleration of gravity, and h is the height of the fluid. Multiply the variables and take the product of the three to solve the equation.
