**HELP with Force!!**

I've got a "dilemma" here about Force:

" Containers with different volumes but with the same areas at the bottom are filled with water of equal mass. Will the Force applied to the bottom of containers vary according to container?"

First of all I guess Force must be equal to the Weight [W] of water which is same for all containers W=mg=F , but on the other hand if I calculate it from pressure F=PxA=dghA=dgV (P-pressure,A-area at the bottom, d-density of liquid , V-volume of container) and it varies due to the volume of container.

Thanks..........
