Impulse Fav t = p Average Pressure = F / A y p y average vertical force f y t mv y t Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 3 Atmospheric Pressure Basically weight of atmosphere! Air molecules are colliding with you right now! Pressure = 1x105 N/m2 = 14.7 lbs/in2! Example: Sphere with r = 0.1 m Magdeburg Spheres demo A = 4 p r2 = .125 m2 F = 12,000 Newtons (over 2,500 lbs)! Can demo Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 4 Pascal’s Principle A change in pressure at any point in a confined fluid is transmitted everywhere in the fluid. Hydraulic Lift P1 = P2 F1/A1 = F2 / A2 F1 = F2 (A1/A2) lift demo Compare the work done by F1 with the work done by F2 A) W1 > W2 B) W1 = W2 C) W1 < W2 Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 5 Gravity and Pressure Two identical “light” containers are filled with water. The first is completely full of water, the second container is filled only ½ way. Compare the pressure each container exerts on the table. 1 A) P1 > P2 B) P1 = P2 2 C) P1 < P2 Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 6 Pascal’s Principle (Restated) 1. Without gravity: Pressure of a confined fluid is everywhere the same. 2. With gravity: P = Patm + r g h Density r = M/V Pressure of a fluid is everywhere the same at the same depth. [vases demo] In general: in a confined fluid, change in pressure is everywhere the same. Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 7 Dam ACT B A A Two dams of equal height prevent water from entering the basin. Compare the net force due to the water on the two dams. A) FA > FB B) FA=FB C) FA< FB Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 8 Pressure and Depth Barometer: a way to measure atmospheric pressure For non-moving fluids, pressure depends only on depth. p1=0 p2 = p1 + rgh Patm - 0 = rgh p2=patm h Measure h, determine patm example--Mercury r = 13,600 kg/m3 patm = 1.05 x 105 Pa h = 0.757 m = 757 mm = 29.80” (for 1 atm) Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 9 Checkpoint Is it possible to stand on the roof of a five story (50 foot) tall house and drink, using a straw, from a glass on the ground? 1.No 2.Yes Physics 101: Lecture 17, Pg 10 Archimedes’ Principle Determine force of fluid on immersed cube Draw FBD » FB = F2 – F1 » = P 2 A – P1 A » = (P2 – P1)A » =rgdA » =rgV » = (Mfluid/V) g V » = Mfluid g Buoyant force is weight of displaced fluid!
