No. The answer is clearly no. This building is 800 meter high. Some comparison: Skydivers are falling more kilometers in free fall. They experience absolutely no damage from the pressure increase. Scuba divers moving fast upwardly or downwardly also don't get any wounds, although 10 meter deep water has the same pressure as there is between the sea level ...


This is an instrument that measures fog density and has an experimental plot, figure 9 . Once you have the relative humidity at the fog appearance at a temperature and pressure , one can use known equations to get the density. This link gives a calculator.


I'll write my comments here as a full answer, as suggested by Floris. I won't use the moment of inertia tensor: it's simpler from pure angular momentum of each point particle. We know that $$\vec{L} = (\vec{r} \times \dot{\vec{r}})\,m .$$ So, for a point particle, $$d\vec{L} = (\vec{r} \times \dot{\vec{r}})\, dm .$$ Noting that $\rho = \frac{dm}{dV}$, ...


It depends on the fluid. Consider, for example, an ideal gas at fixed temperature near the surface of the Earth. Does the density vary in such a column? Yes. Let's investigate as follows. Imagine that the column is in the $z$-direction and has cross-sectional area $A$. Let $z=0$ at the ground. Consider a small, vertical "piece" of the column between ...


ice is less denser than water because in ice the molecules arrange themselves in a rigid tetrahedral structure due to which cage like spaces remain in their bonding. But water molecules remain in linear bonding form. As the volume of ice becomes greater, it is less denser.
