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

A right circular cone with water has a height of 6 ft and the upper circular base has a radius of 8 ft. How much work is needed to empty said container if the extraction is done from above?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

First of all, I tried dividing the cone shaped container into thin slices and calculate the amount of work needed to lift each and every one of these thin slices out of the container via antiderivatives...

But I'm not sure how to continue. Any help would be appreciated. :)
