I am attempting to calculate the pressure at the bottom of a bottle at the moment of impact. I have calculated the force of impact ,but now I am unsure if this will be the same force (approx) applied to the top of the liquid to determine the hydraulic pressure at the bottom of the bottle. In other words I need to find the hydraulic pressure exerted in a bottle, ( a full bottle that has fallen a certain distance). If i have a bottle full of liquid of given mass falling a given distance.I can calculate the force at which it impacts. But does this help me find the answer to the above question?
