Hello! I just found this website and it looks amazing! I'm not a scientist or anything, but I love it (should've studied physics but oh well), so I think it will be fun and useful for me to join this forum.

I am trying to solve a situation, where I'd like to know how much energy would be needed to push a mass of water out of a container. Here's an image to help understand:

The container has a height of 3 meters, length of 5 meters, and width of 3 meters. If a device, much like a coffee press but watertight, pushes the water with only the hole on top of the container, as shown in the drawing, as an exit point, how much energy would be needed for that device to go all the way to the other side of the container? Assuming the hole is 1 square meter, if that can help.

If there is a formula that would enable me to figure this out, that is all I'm asking, I can try and do the math myself, but I can't figure out where to start!

I realize it's an odd situation or post, but it has been bugging me for a while!

Thanks a lot!
