Two vessels have the same base area but different shapes. The first vessel take twice the volume of water that the second vessel requires to fill upto a particular common height. Is the force exerted by the water on the base of the vessel the same in the two cases ? If so, why do the vessels filled with water to that same height give different readings on weighing scale ?
(a) Pressure on the basis of the two vessels is same because the vessels have been filled to common height…
Since having same area of bases of both vessels face same force
Vessels of different shape may have different non¬zero vertical components so the vessels of different shape filled to the same height give different readings.
