 Relevant Equations:
 n/a
" For the conical vessel, we note that pressure is a local force, and so must be independent of conditions far away. Hence altering the shape of the flasks walls while keeping local conditions constant will not change the pressure locally, and so F = (ρgh+Pa)πr2 also holds for this flask "
Can someone expand on this and the theory behind it? My intuition is lower mass, lower force, but this is countered in the next part of this problem.
