Pascal's Law states that the pressure applied to a fluid in a closed container is transmitted equally to all points in the fluid and act in all directions of the container. Pascal's Law is applicable to both solids and liquids.

F = PA; where F=applied force, P=pressure transmitted, and A=cross-sectional area.

F = PA; where F=applied force, P=pressure transmitted, and A=cross-sectional area.

I think A is the right answer.

NO, During derivation of the Pascal's law the condition is assumed of static liquid. The static liquid can not sustain any shear stress i.e. tangential force is absent. How does pressure increase when we increase the depth of a liquid, but Pascal's Law states that pressure is always equal?

According to me, the answer should be A or C.

Pascal law applicable only to static fluids, so the answer is B.

Pascal law is all about static fluid. How come answer is none of this?
