When I measure pressure in relation to depth, I found that as the depth increases, so does the pressure. I experimented this in a LARGE graduated cylinder. What would be the difference if I used a SMALL graduated cylinder versus a large one? What is the evidence for this? And what is happening on a molecular level to the molecules in the smaller graduated cylinder?
