Hydrostatic Pressure of an Incompressible Fluid

A fluid can be considered incompressible if it takes a large amount of pressure to compress the fluid. Liquids can be considered incompressible fluids. To determine the hydrostatic pressure of an incompressible fluid refer to equation 1.

(Eq 1) $P_1=γh+P_2$

P2 = Hydrostatic Pressure

γ = Specific Weight

h = Fluid Head

P1 = Initial Pressure
