Hydrostatic equilibrium is a condition that, if held, guarantees that pressure is sufficient to counteract the force by gravity
Non Differential SolutionEdit
Pressure as a Function of DepthEdit
Assuming that density is constant
This principle states that the mass of water displaced is equal to the mass of the floating object. Assuming that the density of water is constant with respect to depth:
Using Archimedes Principle to Find Submerged HeightEdit
Suppose we want to find how far a block of wood with density is submerged in water with density .
