"It works on the principle that water is incompressible in any and all directions," answered Blake.
Furthermore, two simple principles are taught by physics: Fluids are incompressible and they seek the lowest hydrostatic level.
incompressible, in-kom-pres′i-bl, adj. not to be compressed into smaller bulk.
The arteries are incompressible and rigid, the blood-pressure strikingly raised.
My pulse rose to 160, and continued hard and incompressible even at that rate.
To every proposition in electrostatics there is thus a corresponding one in the hydrokinetic theory of incompressible liquids.
Let a source of fluid be a point from which an incompressible fluid is emitted in all directions.
Water, though yielding, is incompressible, and offers to a moving body a resistance increasing with the speed of that body.
Fluids are divided into liquids, or incompressible fluids, and gases, or compressible fluids.
This piston is pierced with a small hole, through which the incompressible liquid passes as the piston moves.
