Three rigid buckets, shown as in the figures (1), (2) and (3), are of identical heights and base areas.
Further, assume that each of these buckets have negligible mass and are full of water. The weights
of water in these buckets are denoted as W

_{1}, W_{2}, and W_{3}respectively. Also, let the force of water on the base of the bucket be denoted as F_{1}, F_{2}, and F_{3}respectively. The option giving an accurate description of the system physics isQuestions Asked from Fluid Statics (Marks 2)
