Fluid Pressure

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations
fluid pressure = fluid density * depth * g

3. The attempt at a solution
My understanding is that fluid pressure at any two points at the same depth is equal, for a fluid at rest. But because one end is open, the pressure at point C is less than B and equal to A? I don’t understand intuitively how this works.

Any help would be appreciated – thanks!
