# Hydrostatic Pressure

**Formula:**`P = ρgh`

## Introduction to Hydrostatic Pressure

Hydrostatic pressure refers to the pressure exerted by a fluid at equilibrium due to the force of gravity. The pressure is determined by the density of the fluid (**ρ**), the acceleration due to gravity (**g**), and the height (**h**). This formula, **P = ρgh**, calculates the hydrostatic pressure.

## Parameter Usage:

`ρ`

= density of the fluid`g`

= acceleration due to gravity`h`

= height of the fluid column

## Output:

`P`

= hydrostatic pressure

## Data Validation:

The numerical values for density and height should be greater than zero.

## Summary

This calculator provides the hydrostatic pressure given the density of the fluid, acceleration due to gravity, and the height of the fluid column.
