Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was asked today by a friend a simple question but couldn't answer so I'm asking you.

Let's assume we have a vertical cylinder full of water, what is the pressure on the sides of the cylinder?

If it was the pressure downwards it simply L*g*rho but to the sides I'm not sure...

10x a lot,

Adam.
