In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases, plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids.

A fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases and plasmas. Fluids display properties such as flow, pressure, and tension, which can be described with a fluid model. For example, liquids form a surface which exerts a force on other objects in contact with it, and is the basis for the forces of capillarity and cohesion. Fluids are a continuum (or "continuous" in some sense) which means that they cannot be strictly separated into separate pieces. However, there are theoretical limits to the divisibility of fluids. Fluids are in contrast to solids, which are able to sustain a shear stress with no tendency to continue deforming.

so we knew that the gauge pressure is always equal in the density times the acceleration due to gravity times the height and in this case, solving for height. We have the pressure over the density of mercury times the acceleration due to gravity, and so this would be equaling the pressure. 1.0 atmosphere. There are 1.0 13 times 10 to the fifth Pascal's per atmosphere. This would be divided by the density of mercury which we know to be 13,600 kilograms per cubic meter multiplied by 9.80 meters per second squared and we find out the height of mercury in a the death of mercury. For one, atmospheric pressure would be 10.76 meters. This would be our final answer. That is the end of the solution. Thank you for what?
