Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.
Consider a surface element with cross section A
Pressure P is defined as the ratio between the force F applied to this element and the cross section area of the element;
P = F / A
Now, what is this force?
This force is the weight of the water pressing down on this surface element.
Assume this surface ...
