In my Calc II class, we are starting to learn applications regarding work. Now I know Work = the integral of (Force) x (Distance) dx, but the question involves a fluid. So the equation is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

W= Integral of F x D dx, but we replace F= (Volume) x (Density). This is were I am confuse. How does (Volume) x (Density)=F?. Doesn't F=(mass) x (acceleration)? I don't see the relation between the F=V(density) and the F=ma.
