Hydrostatic Pressure Calculator

Enter the density of a fluid (1000kg/m^3 for fresh water) and the depth in that fluid an object is submerged to calculate the hydrostatic pressure.

Hydro Static Pressure Formula

The following equation is used by the calculator above to determine the hydro static pressure acting on an object submerged in a fluid.

hp = ρ * g * h + p0

  • Where hp is the hydro static pressure
  • ρ is the density of the fluid
  • g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s^2 on earth)
  • h is the depth
  • and P0 is the atmospheric pressure. (101325 pascals)
