    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    a region that resists a body of water follows the curve y=.3x^2 from 0<=y<=240
    using water density of 1000 kg/m^3 and g of 9.8 m/sec^2

    2. Relevant equations
    0 to 240∫g(rho)(240-y)2(sqrt(y/.3)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i think it is 8520997056
