The net force on the sample of liquid within the darker region must be zero because the sample is in equilibrium.

(a) Diagram of a hydraulic press. Because the increase in pressure is the same at the left and right sides, a : : small force F 1 at the left produces a much larger force F 2 at the right. (b) A vehicle under repair is supported by a hydraulic lift in a garage.

(a) A totally submerged object that is less dense than the ﬂuid in which it is submerged experiences a net upward force. (b) A totally submerged object that is denser than the ﬂuid sinks.
An object ﬂoating on the surface of a liquid experiences two forces, the : gravitational force F g and the : buoyant force B. Because the object ﬂoats in equilibrium, B F g .

(Example 15.3) (a) When the crown is suspended in air, the scale reads its true weight because T1 Fg (the buoyancy due to air is negligible). (b) When : the crown is immersed in water, the buoyant force B reduces the scale reading to T2 Fg B .

Hot gases from a cigarette made visible by smoke particles. The smoke ﬁrst moves in laminar ﬂow at the bottom and then in turbulent ﬂow above.
This diagram represents a set of streamlines (blue lines). A particle at P follows one of these streamlines, and its velocity is tangent to the streamline at each point along its path.
