- Homework Statement:
- So my understanding is that for an object submerged in a fluid, the pressure from above is because of the weight of the fluid directly above it. However, the pressure at the bottom of the object is greater because of the hydrostatic equation. What causes this pressure since it isn't weight clearly?
- Relevant Equations:
- And to check my understanding, this pressure times area of the object equals the object's weight times the weight of all the fluid vertically above the object right?
