Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could you please tell me if the setup is correct?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A circularswimming pool has a diameter of 24 feet, the sides are 5ft hight, and the depth of the water is 4 ft. How much work is required to pump all of the water out over the side? (Use the fact that water weighs 62. lb/ft^3)

2. Relevant equations

w=(force)(distance)

3. The attempt at a solution

force=(62.5 lb/ft^3)(9.8m/s^2)=

6.12.598

distance=24ft

work=int. 0 to 24(612.598)(24)ydy

Thank you very much
