I am working on the problem below that is confusing me. I am not sure of how to approach the center of pressure and resultant force. I attempted the problem using the formulas for a rectangular wall but I am not sure if its right. The problem asks for the pressure acting against the FLAT ends of the tank. It wants the diagram labled from the side view so that's why I would think this problem would be approached as if it were a rectangle plus a circle for the ends. Any suggestions would be great.
