Hello! I am currently in Calculus 2 and we are dealing with hydrostatic force. I get the integration that happens but I always seem to have trouble with solving the word problems. With this problem, I realize that I use integrate by making an infinite number of rectangles on the 2 triangles. I wanna know the differences in solving both of them and trying to find the width formula with respect to x. Thank you!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
