Hydrostatic pressure.

  1. May 10, 2010 #1
    One of the six conditions of hydrostatic pressure is said to be that the volume of the liquid does not affect the hydrostatic pressure.
    Can anyone explain why?

    Welcome to pf.

    What is pressure? What about the definition implies volume matters?
