Hi John, the 1 & the 0.029 values (in addition to the y location on the surfaxce in this case) multiply to produce the actual pressure that gets applied. The factor 0.029 is based on the specific gravity of the fluid applied. The pressure factor for water at room temperature is about 0.036 psi/inch of depth. Water has a density of 1000 kg/m^3 so I would expect you can multiply 0.036 psi/in times 3.6 for your value. (Pardon the mixed units but I think in IPS)
