## What is hydrostatic force?

When a surface is submerged in a fluid, forces develop on the surface due to the fluid. The determination of these forces is important in the design of storage tanks, ships, dams, and other hydraulic structures. For fluids at rest we know that the force must be perpendicular to the surface since there are no shearing stresses present. Hydrostatic forces are the resultant force caused by the pressure loading of a liquid acting on submerged surfaces.
