1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A cylindrical tank, with base radius 9.4 meter, lies on its side and is partially filled with a liquid whose density is [tex]\sigma[/tex]=1260 kilograms per cubic meter. The liquid fills the tank to a maximum depth of 14 meters. Determine the amount of force (in Newtons) exerted on a flat side of the tank.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I need help setting it up.
So far I have:
F= int (from -9.4 to 9.4) (14-y) 2(88.36-y^2)^(1/2)
Is that right? Or should be from 0 to 14?

The pressure is a variable function of the depth. You have to integrate the pressure over the area of the end of the tank.
