This listing features a two-page problem set about pressure in fluids in relation to Pascal’s Principle. There are six story problems in this worksheet. This worksheet is an essential component of curriculum for a unit about forces in fluids for a physical science or physics course.
Students will calculate the gauge pressure of a fluid, the depth of a submerged object, the area of an input and output piston, the input force on a piston, and the output force on a piston.
This worksheet is editable. I included an equation bank at the top of both student pages, which includes a breakdown of what each letter symbol used in the respective equation means. The letter symbols of the derived units in the equations are parenthesized next to the values in the story problems to help students with the measurement placement in each respective equation. Students also have access to the constant values for gravity and the densities of water. I provided a two-page answer key.
This worksheet is the first of a two-part series. The other one is titled Pascal’s Principle Problems of Pressure Set 2. I also offer both worksheets as a bundled listing in my store for a 20% discount. Check out my problem set titled Buoyancy and Archimedes' Principle Problem Sets 1 & 2 too!
I had seventeen years of publishing experience before launching my curriculum through TPT, starting in February of 2018.
