Say you have a cylinder.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The cylinder is 6 inches in diameter and 10 feet high.

The cylinder has a floor at the bottom and is open at the top.

The cylinder is full of water. How much pressure is exerted on the floor of the cylinder?

Is it simply the weight of the water in the cylinder? How would you calculate?
