Pressure in fluids

These resources explore pressure through investigation.  The list provides a range of activities, lesson ideas, background information, practical tips and suggested teaching strategies. and links to the following areas of the 2014 National Curriculum:

• atmospheric pressure, decreases with increase of height as weight of air above decreases with height
• pressure in liquids, increasing with depth; upthrust effects, floating and sinking
• pressure measured by ratio of force over area – acting normal to any surface
