Pressure in pulmonary capillaries

Question: Would the blood pressure in the pulmonary capillaries at the bottom of a lung be the same as the blood pressure in the capillaries at the top of a lung in the standing individual? Which area would have the lower blood pressure?
Question: With the answer to Question 1 in mind, if lower blood pressure allows more pulmonary capillaries to be open, where in the lung would you expect to find more collapsed capillaries, at the base or at the apex?
