(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A swimming pool has dimensions 30.0 m and 10.0 m and a flat bottom. When the pool is filled to a depth of 2.00 m with fresh water, what is the force caused by the water on the bottom? On each end? On each side?

2. Relevant equations

B = pgV

P_{1}+pgh+1/2pv^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

For the force on the bottom I thought it'd make sense to use buoyancy, so basically (10^{3})*9.8**30*10*2), which is 5,880,000N... As for the sides and ends, I haven't got a clue on how to do it, I thought it might've involved Bernoulli's equation but I'm not really sure..
