Water pressure is given by

**P = h $\times$ 9.81 kPa**where

P = water pressure,

h = pressure head (height above the outlet)

**Step 1 :**

**Step 2 :**

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 = 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.

Read the given problem and observe the given quantities

The water pressure is given by

P = h $\times$ 9.81 kPa

Substitute the values in above formula and get the answer.

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.

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.
