(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A cylindrical storage tank 8 feet in diameter and 20 feet long is lying horizontally on the ground. The tank is full of olive oil whose weight density is 57 lb/ft^3. How much work does it take to pump the olive oil to a level of 6 feet above the top of the tank?

Almost identical to one posted a while ago.

2. Relevant equations

V = 20 * 2x

[tex]\int[/tex] [from -4 to 4] 20 * 2 * 57 * (14 - y) * ([tex]\sqrt{}16 - y^2[/tex]) dy

3. The attempt at a solution

Cranked it out and got 255360 pi -97280 ft - lbs

or 704957 ft - lbs

I think this is right, but an affirmative by a few more people would be a great help.
