Que 5) State and explain the Pressure-Depth relation. Give meaning of each term in
it.

## The perpendicular force acting on unit

surface area of the object is called as pressure.
a liquid of density (ρ) having unit cross sectional area
(A) and (h) is the depth of liquid inside the cylinder.

The total force exerted by the = Weight of the liquid inside the
liquid on surface in contact cylindrical flask
F = W
Here, W = mg Where, m is the mass of liquid inside the cylinder .
g is the acceleration due to gravity.
V is the volume of liquid inside the cylinder.

## F = (mass of the liquid) × g

mass (m)
But, Density( ρ) = then, mass = V × ρ
Volume (V)

## F = ( Volume of the liquid (𝐕) × Density of the liquid (𝛒) ) × g

Now, V = πr 2 h and 𝐴 = 𝜋𝑟 2
Thus, V=A × h
F = (𝐴 × ℎ × 𝜌 ) × g
F
Where, P =
A
F (𝐴 × ℎ × 𝜌 ) × g
=
A A
Therefore, P= ℎ × 𝜌 × g

This is the equation for Pressure – Depth relation. The pressure depends on the depth of
the liquid and density of the liquid, more is the depth then more is the pressure.

changes by some amount, equal amount of change in pressure transmitted thought the liquid.
This change in pressure acts normal to the surface everywhere.

When a solid insoluble body is immersed in a fluid, then fluid exerts an upward force and
liquid displaces; such force is called as buoyant force or upthrust force
Weight of displaced liquid = Magnitude of buoyant force.
Therefore weight of displaced liquid is
Loss of weight = Weight of displaced liquid
W in air - W in liquid = ( mass of liquid) × g
W in air - W in liquid = (V disp × ρ liquid ) × g …………… (1)
Therefore weight of body is
W of solid = (V solid × ρ solid ) × g …………… (2)
If body is floating then,
Weight of body = Weight of displaced liquid
(V solid × ρ solid ) × g = (V disp × ρ liquid ) × g
Thus ,
V solid ρ liquid
=
V disp ρ solid
This formula is called as Archimedes Relation,
Where, W in air = Actual Weight
W in liquid = Apparent Weight
V disp = Volume of displaced liquid
V solid = Volume of solid
ρ liquid = Density of liquid
ρ solid = Density of solid.

2) Turbulent flow
3) Critical velocity.
Streamline flow: The flow of liquid in which every particles of the liquid are moves in
same direction and with constant velocity is called as streamline flow.
e.g. Flow of river water in summer season, flow of liquid through capillary tube.

Turbulent flow: The flow of liquid in which every particles of the liquid are moves in
random direction and with different velocity is called as turbulent flow.
e.g. Flow of river water in rainy season, Waterfalls, Flood water.

Critical Velocity :The maximum velocity of flow of liquid below which flow is streamline
and beyond which flow is turbulent is called as critical velocity.
Critical velocity is denoted by symbol (Vc)

## Que 14) Define Terminal velocity.

Definition: The constant velocity with which a body falls freely through a liquid column is
called as terminal velocity.

Que 15) What is Reynolds Number and Give the physical significance of Reynold’s
Number?
Scientist Reynolds studied the motion of flow of liquid through a tube of radius 1cm
and he observed that the critical velocity (Vc) depends upon coefficient of viscosity (η),
density of liquid (ρ) and the radius of tube (r),

Rη 𝑉𝑐 𝜌𝑟
Vc = or R=
ρr 𝜂

## Where R is constant known as Reynolds number which is used to determine the

nature of flow of liquid through a tube.

## Physical Significance of Reynolds Number:

1) When R is less than 2000, then the nature flow of liquid is streamline.
2) When R is in between 2000 and 3000, then the nature flow of liquid is unstable.
3) When R is greater than 3000, then the nature flow of liquid is turbulent.

## Que 16) State and Explain Stoke’s law of viscosity.

Statement: Stoke’s law states that, “The viscous force experienced by a spherical body,
falling freely through a liquid column with constant velocity is directly proportional to
(1) The coefficient of viscosity of fluid (η) i.e. F ∝ η
(2) The radius of spherical body (r) i.e. F ∝ r
(3) The terminal velocity attained by a spherical body (v) i.e. F ∝ v

Therefore, F∝ηrv
F = 6𝜋 η r v
Where 6𝝅 is a constant of proportionality.
The above relation is known as Stokes formula.

## Consider the spherical body of radius ‘r’ and density ‘d’

falling freely through a liquid having density ‘𝜌’ moving with a constant
velocity ‘v’ therefore spherical body experience three types of forces.
1) Weight of the body (W), acting downwards
2) Viscous force (FV), acting upwards
3) Upthrust force or Buoyant force (FT) of liquids, acting
upwards.
The Viscous force is given by the Stoke’s law of viscosity,
F = 6𝜋 η r v ……….. (1)
The Upthrust force is given by the Archimedes Principle,
According to Archimedes Principle,
Upthrust force = Loss of weight
= Weight of displaced liquid.

From equation (1), (2) and (3)
When the body falling freely with a constant velocity then,
The Upward force = The Downward force
