How does the pressure of a liquid depend on its depth? Draw a labelled diagram to show that the pressure of a liquid (say, water) depends on its depth.
All the liquids exert pressure on the base or bottom and walls of their container. All the liquid have weight. When we pour liquid into a vessel, then the weight of liquid pushes down on the base of the vessel producing a pressure.
The liquid exerts pressure on the base of the vessel.
The pressure exerted by a liquid changes with depth in the liquid. The pressure exerted by a liquid increases with increasing depth inside the liquid. The pressure exerted by a liquid is small just under the surface of the liquid. But as we go we deeper in a liquid the pressure of liquid increases. As the depth of liquid increases the weight of liquid column pushing down from above increases and hence the pressure also increases.
