title: Pascal's Vases

Differently shaped containers are connected to a common resevoir to show that the pressure at the bottom is the same for each, despite the volume or shape.
    The apparatus can be tilted by raising one end to show the constant level of the fluid.

    Would this work on the moon? (ie. with lower gravity?)
    Would changing the density of the liquid change the results?
