# Hydrostatic Pressure

## Homework Statement

A cylindrical tank, with base radius 9.4 meter, lies on its side and is partially filled with a liquid whose density is $$\sigma$$=1260 kilograms per cubic meter. The liquid fills the tank to a maximum depth of 14 meters. Determine the amount of force (in Newtons) exerted on a flat side of the tank.

## Homework Equations

F=$$\sigma$$dA

## The Attempt at a Solution

I need help setting it up.

So far I have:

F= int (from -9.4 to 9.4) (14-y) 2(88.36-y^2)^(1/2)

Is that right? Or should be from 0 to 14?
