accelerating due to gravity?

Expert Answer:

A liquid exerts pressure on the base of the container (vessel) and on all the bodies immersed in them due to its weight.
 Liquid pressure= Weight density × Depth 
 
Thus, 
P =  ρgh 
 
where, 
 
P - pressure
g - acceleration due to gravity
ρ - density of liquid
h - depth of liquid column 
 
Thus, 
Pressure of liquid is directly proportional to acceleration due to gravity.
