Question:

water pressure ___ with the depth of water

Answer:

Water pressure **increases** with the depth of water. This is due to the weight of the water above exerting pressure on the water below. The relationship can be described by the equation:

[ P = P_0 + \rho g h ]

where:

- ( P ) is the pressure at depth,
- ( P_0 ) is the atmospheric pressure at the surface,
- ( \rho ) is the density of the water,
- ( g ) is the acceleration due to gravity,
- ( h ) is the depth of the water.

As depth ( h ) increases, the pressure ( P ) also increases.
