I need to find the volume of this right circular cylinder as a function of the depth of the fluid. I am having trouble starting this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I realize the equation for the cross sectional view of the cylinder is

[tex]x^2 + y^2 = 1^2 [/tex].

Any suggestions on what to look at next?

Should I be looking to set up an integral to find the area of that circle as a function of the depth of the fluid? Then, once I do that, find an integral to get me the volume of the fluid across the length cylinder?
