Water Pressure Calculator
Top
Water pressure tells about how much pressure the flow has! When water flows through the pipe it gets pushed due to the pressure on it. It is measured in kPa.

Water pressure is given by
P = h $\times$ 9.81 kPa
where
P = water pressure,
h = pressure head (height above the outlet)

Water Pressure Calculator is a online tool that calculates the water pressure.You just have to enter the values of pressure head h and get the water pressure as answer.

  1. Calculate the water pressure at the bottom for a tank having 100 m height.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: Pressure head h = 100 m



    Step 2 :  

    The water pressure P is
    P = h $\times$ 9.81 kPa
      = 100 m $\times$ 9.81 kPa
      = 981 kPa.



    Answer  :  

    The water pressure is 981 kPa.



  2. A dam has depth of 300 m. Calculate the water pressure at the bottom.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: Pressure head h = 300 m



    Step 2 :  

    The water pressure is
    P = h $\times$ 9.81 kPa
      = 300 m $\times$ 9.81 kPa
      = 2943 kPa.



    Answer  :  

    The water pressure is 2943 kPa.
