I fill a cylindrical tank of length 50 ft and diameter 90 ft with water (to the brim). What is the force the bottom 1 ft band of water exerts on the lining?
The Attempt at a Solution
My main doubt is whether i should integrate from 0 to 1 and add the weight of the water above or simply integrate from 49 to 50 and be done. Both yield significantly different results.
