Consider the following statements:
A. The pressure increases as the depth increase.
B. Upthrust on a body depends on the acceleration due to gravity, the density of the liquid and the volume of the body immersed in the liquid.
Which of the following option is true?
Both `A’ and `B’ are true statements
Both A and B are true statements.
A: As the depth increases the weight of the column above it increases thus the pressure increases.
B: When a body is immersed fully or partially in a fluid, it experiences an upward force that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by it.
Upthrust = Volume of body × density of liquid × acceleration due to gravity.
