# Pressure in a sealed container kept at the bottom of a liquid

Suppose i have a rigid container(cylinder) open from top. I put it in large reservoir having h column of liquid. There is no air in the container during the process of placement of the container inside the liquid. The container placed upside down at the bottom of the reservoir and it is leakproof such that whatever amount of liquid entered is cut off from the liquid surround the container , means , the liquid inside container is not in contact with the liquid outside it. My question here is that ,will the pressure of liquid inside the container remain same as it was before or it will change?

My intuition says that the pressure inside the liquid is due to the weight of the water column. Now that the liquid inside container is completely cut off from the surrounding liquid, it should be independent of weight of surround water column. Hence the pressure inside container should change and it would depend upon the weight of water column inside it. Pls clarify where am i getting wrong? All conditions are ideal, neglect compressibility and other things.

My initial question closed due to some unexplainable reasons so i am trying to clarify more about what i am trying to understant here, My doubt is that, pressure in fluids at a point is due to the weight of the fluid column above it. So will the pressure change if we somehow able to compensate the above weight (by completely blocking up from all sides a particular part of the fluid)? example, you have open container kept on the surface, atmospheric pressure acts on it(even inside the container as it is open). Now if you put a lid on the container such that it becomes leakproof( whatever air is inside remains inside and has no interaction with the outer air. Will the pressure now change in the container?

• i don't know why it has been closed, i am really looking for the answer. I tried my best to explain it. Commented Dec 9, 2023 at 20:09
• You may consider submarines as examples, or am I mistaken? Commented Dec 12, 2023 at 14:15
• @Toffomat not submarine, i was considering an ideal case where you have a perfectly rigid container and somehow you flip it at the bottom surface, such that some liquid traps in it and any other liquid won't be able to come inside the container or go outside it, so i had a doubt whether pressure would be same inside it (as that of outside) or not..

• I wanna ask you, we are surrounded by atmosphere which exert some atmospheric pressure, do all closed containers on earth have pressure inside them equal to atmospheric pressure? Isn't it thing of daily experience? How did you even got the question? Commented Dec 13, 2023 at 12:41
• my question was different, and it was too ideal to be true, so you cannot relate this to real life i guess... in real life we do not really have perfectly leak proof objects . there is some air going in and out Commented Dec 13, 2023 at 12:49
