Three vessels have different shapes, but the area of their bottom surface is
the same, and all three are filled with water with the same depth (1.|_|
2.\_/ 3./_\ ). Rank the
magnitudes of the net forces exerted by the water on the bottom surface.

asked by Lee
  1. the same depth means the same pressure at the bottom

    the forces are equal
