Pascal’s Law states “pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid such that the pressure ratio (initial difference) remains the same”. My question is, are the two scenarios that I have outlined the same? (see attached). Scenario 1 is where the right hand cylinder is much higher than the left hand cylinder. Scenario 2 is where both cylinders are at the same height. However does the weight of the water affect the system in scenario 1? Because the right hand cylinder is high up in scenario 1, the pressure of the water at the bottom of scenario 1 is greater than scenario 2. Therefore will scenario 1 work as good as scenario 2?
