Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

1. Pressure: Definition, Units, and Conversions

Have you ever wondered what pressure is and how it gets measured? In this lesson, we are going to define pressure and explain some of the units that are used to express measurements of pressure.

Hydrostatic Pressure: Definition, Equation, and Calculations

2. Hydrostatic Pressure: Definition, Equation, and Calculations

This video lesson will introduce you to hydrostatic pressure in a liquid, as well as provide examples for how to calculate the liquid's pressure at a given depth.

Buoyancy: Calculating Force and Density with Archimedes' Principle

3. Buoyancy: Calculating Force and Density with Archimedes' Principle

Knowledge of the buoyant force is important when trying to understand why some objects float while other objects sink. In this lesson you'll learn about this unique force and how we apply it to various situations using Archimedes' Principle.

Bernoulli's Principle: Definition and Examples

4. Bernoulli's Principle: Definition and Examples

Understanding how a moving fluid's speed and pressure change as it flows along is not only important for building airplanes but also for backyard fun. In this video lesson you'll learn about Bernoulli's principle and identify some practical applications of this concept.

What is Pascal's Principle?

5. What is Pascal's Principle?

Feeling pressured to learn about Pascal's principle? Then you came to the right place. Pascal's principle states that a change in pressure at any point in an enclosed fluid is transmitted equally throughout that fluid. See examples and learn more.
