but sir density as we go deep keeps on changing then why the pressure should be calculated keeping density 1,,,, also as we go down the same volume of liquid would weight different and hence different pressure.
So you cannot tell me anything about contacting,.....well okkk 
Sir my question which i wanted to address was A rectangular plate of dimensions 6cm*4cm* and thickness 2mm is placed with its largest face on the surface of water. findd the downward force on the plate due to surface tension. surface tension of water is 7*10^-2 N/m
