Fluid Statics—The Tip of the Iceberg
Lecture no. 19 from the course: Physics and Our Universe
Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Fluid is matter in a liquid or gaseous state. In this lecture, study the characteristics of fluids at rest. Learn why water pressure increases with depth, and air pressure decreases with height. Greater pressure with depth causes buoyancy, which applies to balloons as well as boats and icebergs.
