if a bucket is on an elevator floor in a(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); inconpressiblefluid of density p. When the elevator is accelerating downards, what is the pressure difference between two points in a fluid, separated by a vertical distance of delta h.

I was thinking that it is p (g - a) delta h, since it should be taking away from g, but could it be g + a, or could the whole equation be pa delta h, p g delta h, or p g a delta h, because of the inconpressiblity and/or the possiblity of the pressure being the same, can i have some hints on this please, thanks.
