Homework Help: Pressure (continued)

  1. Mar 5, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Suppose a container holds a homogeneous fluid. Does the shape of a container affect the pressure at a given depth within the fluid? Explain.

    2. Relevant equations
    Pressure = density * g * h

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Well, since the pressure depends on the density of the fluid and the height, the shape of a container doesn't have any effect on it. Is my answer correct? Please let me know.
