What are the factors which affect the pressure at a point in liquid?

Answer:
Liquid pressure at a point depends on the following three factors:

  • Depth of point below the free surface
  • Density of the liquid
  • Acceleration due to gravity
    The liquid pressure does not depend on the shape of liquid and area of its base.
