Degree: Mathematics with International Study (Masters) - Exeter University
As a mathematician and physicist I have been fascinated by the endless variety of real world applications of mathematics and physics. As a tutor I believe that having a passion for the subjects is the key to success and I thrive to share my interest in the subjects with my students.
Throughout my A Levels I volunteered to tutor AS Level maths and physics to individual students (mainly mechanics). I have not only been able to teach AS Level students how to solve mechanics problems; I helped them understand the concepts behind the problems.

The hydrostatic force is a force exerted by a fluid on a submerged body. This force comes from the weight of the fluid acting down on the submerged body, so it can be derived from the equation weight (in this case hydrostatic force)=mass*g and mass=density*volume.
You can calculate the volume of the column of water above the object by multiplying the surface area of the object by the depth the object is submerged by. Calculate the mass of the object and density of the fluid and then substitute into the equation above to find the total force exerted on the submerged body.
