# Describe an Experiment to Show that a Liquid Exerts Pressure at the Bottom of the Container in Which It is Kept. - ICSE Class 8 - Physics

ConceptPressure Pressure Exerted by Liquids and Gases

#### Question

Describe an experiment to show that a liquid exerts pressure at the bottom of the container in which it is kept.

#### Solution

A LIQUID EXERTS PRESSURE AT THE BOTTOM OF ITS CONTAINER:

Take a balloon and tie it at the lower end of a glass tube and hold vertically as in fig. (a) pour some water in the tube, balloon bulges out as in
(b) because water column exerts pressure (∴ liquid has weight) at its bottom. Force on balloon is equal to the weight of Thrust water column which is called the thrust P = Thrust / Area
This shows that a liquid exerts pressure at the bottom of container in which it is kept.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
