There is a cylinder of diameter d,it is filled with water.

Upto what height should water be filled so that the pressure on the side

walls of the cylinder is equal to the pressure on the bottom?

Since the hydrostatic pressure is a linear function of the vertical variable, the mean value of the pressure is the arithmetic mean of the top and bottom values.

This can be used to estimate the total force on the cylindrical wall.

Yes I mean the force due to pressure (sorry)

So, When you solve I get the height is d/2.

Am I right??
