fluid exherts pressure in all directions.then,it should exhert pressure on the top too. if we enclose water in a closed-from-all-sides container and make a hole on top,then why doesnt it flow out from there? p=hdg (where h is the height of the column from top) here u can say that the height is nill =that would be an accepted answer.but i wanna know that why should the pressure be nill? actually the pressure has been applied from all the molecules straight from the bottom.they all must be exherting thrust upwards ?.then why is pressure ultimately nill. i mean,they should exhert mass*gravity everywhere
