At any point, liquid pressure is same in all directions. Pressure is not constant but increases as depth
increases.
Moments & Center of Mass
Center of Mass: Finding a point on a place of any shape that balances the plate horizontally



, is the total mass of the system,

Sum of individual moments is:
 , called the moment of the system about the origin (one
dimensional line, not (x,y) coordinate on 2 dimensional plane).
Moment about the -axis:
 , represents tendency to rotate about the -axis
Moment about the -axis:
 , represents the tendency to rotate about the -axis
Center of mass coordinate:  
Center of mass also called Centroid of plane :
