## The vessel shown in Fig. has two sections of area of cross-section A1 and A2 . A liquid of density ρ fills both the sections, upto height h in each

Q: The vessel shown in Fig. has two sections of area of cross-section A1 and A2 . A liquid of density ρ fills both the sections, upto height h in each. Neglecting atmospheric pressure, (a) The pressure at the base of the vessel is 2 h ρ g

(b) The weight of the liquid in vessel is equal to 2 h ρ g

(c) The force exerted by the liquid on the base of vessel is 2 h ρ g A2

(d) The walls of the vessel at the level X exert a force h ρ g(A2 – A1 )downwards on the liquid

Ans: (a) , (c) , (d)
