A wooden object floats in $H_2O$ kept in beaker.The object is near a side of the beaker (given in diagram).Let $P_1,P_2,P_3$ be the pressures at the three points $A,B$ and $C$ of the bottom as shown in figure.

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;P_1=P_2=P_3\\(B)\;P_1 < P_2 < P_3\\(C)\;P_1 > P_2 > P_3\\(D)\;P_2=P_3\neq P_1\end{array} $

1 Answer

Pressure of different point on same level is equal if there is no acceleration.
Hence (A) is the correct answer.
