A cylindrical drum of molasses is 25% full and laying on its side. The dimension sof the drum are 4 ft. height and 1.5 ft. radius. Find the pressure on the circular side (end) of the drum) created by the molasses.

Weight density of molasses = 100 lb/ft^3

2. Relevant equations

pressure = weight density x depth

3. The attempt at a solution

Total volume of drum = 9pi ft^3

Volume of molasses = 2.25pi ft^3

Thank you!
