 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;

 As you know atmospheric pressure reduces, as we move to
higher elevations.  Is it because of h, as h reduces, P also reduces.
