Fluid Statics
2
 Fluid Statics: It is the branch of fluid mechanics that deals 
with the behavior/response of fluid when they are at rest. 
 Pressure, (average pressure intensity): It is the normal force 
exerted per unit area. It is denoted by P and is given by;
 Units
 SI: N/m

 Consider a strip or column of a cylindrical fluid,
 h= height or depth of strip of fluid
 ?= specific weight of fluid
 dA=cross-sectional area of strip
 dV=volume of strip
 dW=weight of strip
 Pressure at base of strip=dF/dA=dW/dA
 P= ?dV/dA
 P= ?dA.h/dA
P=?h

Pressure distribution 
diagram/pressure profile
 As you know atmospheric pressure reduces, as we move to 
higher elevations.  Is it because of h, as h reduces, P also reduces.

the fluid is at rest”
 Consider a wedge shape element of fluid 
having dimension dx, dy and dz along x, y 
and z axis.

an angle a with the vertical
 Px, Py, Pz and P are pressure acting in x, y,
