The depth of a fluid is measured in vertical Z – direction; X and Y are the other two directions and are mutually perpendicular. The static pressure variation in the fluid is given by
  • a)
    dp/dz = g
  • b)
    dp/dz = 0
  • c)
    dp/dz = ρg
  • d)
    dp/dz = −ρg
Correct answer is option 'D'. Can you explain this answer?

SSC Question

The pressure at any point in a fluid at rest is obtained by the Hydrostatic Law, which states that the rate of increase of pressure in a vertically downward direction must be equal to the specific weight of the fluid at that point.
p = ρgh
Pressure distribution profile
dp/dz = -ω = -pg
dp = -ω.dz
It indicates that a negative pressure gradient exists upward along any vertical.
Thus, the pressure decreases in the upward direction and increases in the downward direction with a magnitude equal to a specific weight.
