If an object like a sphere is submerged in a fluid and held in place by a rope, does the pressure are the top and the bottom of the sphere have anything to do with the weight/density/geometery of the sphere? or is it simply a case of using the hydrostatic equation for the pressure at the top and the bottom of the object?
In gerneral does pressure in a fluid relate to the properties of objects which may be submerged in it?

Of course putting an object into a container of fluid will increase the pressure by raising the height of the free surface, but it's still the same equation of p = density * g * depth.
