The pressure at the bottom of a vessel filled with liquid does not depend on:

a- the acceleration of gravity
b- the liquid density
c- the height of the liquid
d- the area of the liquid surface

  • PHYSICS -

    p = rho g h
    so it depends on:
    density, rho
    gravity, g
    h , depth

    The pressure at 10 feet is the same no matter how big the lake looks on the map.

    So, D will be the right answer...:) Thank you so much.
