Liquid Pressure
 1) Pressure can be exerted by liquids only solids, liquids and gases solids and liquids only solids only

 2) SI unit of pressure is Newton Joule Pascal Watt

 3) The pressure exerted by liquid is independent of the depth decreases with depth will increase or decrease with depth depending on the density of the liquid increases with depth

 4) The fluid pressure is different in different direction depending on the shape of the container is very negligible in upward direction is uniform in all direction more in downward direction

 5) What is lateral pressure? The pressure exerted by a solid The phenomenon where all points at the same level in a liquid are at the same pressure. The pressure exerted by liquids on the walls of the container. The pressure exerted by the liquid in all directions combined.

 6) The water stream coming out from hole located at which part of the bottle covers the maximum distance? bottom top distance covered does not depend on position of the hole middle

 7) Paheli found that the water in tap comes out faster downstairs than from a tap in her room upstairs even though the water is coming to taps from the same water tank on the terrace. What could be the possible reason for this observation? The tap upstairs is at less depth than tap downstairs Water pressure is less in the tap downstairs. The tap downstairs is smaller than the tap upstairs. This case is not possible.

 8) Pressure of liquid depends on none of these surface area of the container shape of the container size of the container
