Hey everyone!

Here is the problem I have been tackling but did not end up with the correct answer

The extra red arrows I have labelled in myself and called these distances h1,h2 and h3. I assumed the pressure to be the same at levels A & B, hence i have established expressions for both of these and got the following

However this is not right and the right answer is actually 13.0 kN/m3. What did I do wrong exactly?

Thanks
