Pressures at c and d are the same. Pressures at a and b are not the same. Do you know why?

#### Mariog

Because of different fluids ?

And how the fluids are in balance if A and B pressures are not the same ?

yes
And how the fluids are in balance if A and B pressures are not the same ?
$$p_A+\rho_{left}g(x+h)=p_D$$
$$p_B+\rho_{right}g(x+h)=p_C$$
