## What is Fluid Mechanics?

Fluid dynamics is “the branch of applied science that is concerned with the movement of liquids and gases”. It involves a wide range of applications such as calculating force & moments, determining the mass flow rate of petroleum through pipelines, predicting weather patterns, understanding nebulae in interstellar space, and modelling fission weapon detonation.

## What is Hydrostatic Pressure?

Hydrostatic pressure is defined as “The pressure exerted by a fluid at equilibrium at any point of time due to the force of gravity”. Hydrostatic pressure is proportional to the depth measured from the surface as the weight of the fluid increases when a downward force is applied. The fluid pressure can be caused by gravity, acceleration or forces when in a closed container. Consider a layer of water from the top of the bottle. There is the pressure exerted by the layer of water acting on the sides of the bottle. As we move down from the top of the bottle to the bottom, the pressure exerted by the top layer on the bottom adds up. This phenomenon is responsible for more pressure at the bottom of the container.

## How to Calculate Average Pressure given Resultant Force?

Average Pressure given Resultant Force calculator uses Average Pressure on Surface = Resultant Force/Area of Surface to calculate the Average Pressure on Surface, The Average Pressure given Resultant Force formula is defined as the ratio of Resultant force to the area of surface.
