This listing features two, two-page problem sets about pressure in fluids in relation to Pascal’s Principle. There are eleven story problems - six in the first worksheet and five in the second. This series is an essential component of curriculum for a unit about forces in fluids for a physical science or physics course.
In this series, 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.
The worksheet documents are editable. I included an equation bank at the top of all four of the 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 value placement for problem solving. Students also have access to the constant values for gravity and the densities of water.
I provided a two-page answer key for each worksheet. This worksheet set complements the other forces in fluids problem sets I published titled Buoyancy and Archimedes' Principle Problem Sets 1 and 2. I also offer each worksheet in this listing separately in my store. This bundled set offers the worksheets at a 20% discount in comparison to the individual price of each.
I had seventeen years of publishing experience before launching my curriculum through TPT, starting in February of 2018.
