I have a question. If i have an object let say a circular cylinder buried underneath the earth surface with X as its depth. I'm looking for the total work to plumb the oil or water that is in the cylinder to the surface(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if the cylinder stand virtically and has water or oil in it(Y as its depth of water or oil) then the intergration to find work is from 0 to Y. Right??

and if the cylinder stand horizontally still with oild or water in it then the intergration is from the top part of th cylinder (the diameter)to the surface(diameter+ X), right??

and what if their is no oil in the cylinder? what would the intergration be?
