I did a lab on pressure and depth today. This lab was to simply submerge a plastic tube into a large graduated cynlinder to find the relationship between the two. I found that as the depth increases, so does the pressure. One of the questions I'm stuck on for part of my lab report is this one:
On a molecular level, describe why you think this is happening.

  1. As the depth increases, there are more molecules on top pressing down.

  2. Thank you!
    What would be the difference if a small graduated cylinder was used instead of a large one? The pressure would still increase as the depth increases? What about the molecules?
