Find the work done in pumping all the water out of a conical reservoir of radius 10ft at the top and altitude 8ft if at the beginning the reservoir is filled to a depth of 5ft and the water is pumped just to the top of the reservoir.

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

This is my work so far. I am taking the integral from -8 to -3. The top center of the cone is on (0,0). I have the integral going from -8 to -3 of (100 pi) *(62.4) (0-y) dy. The 100 is from the radius squared. The (0-y) is the distance the water has to travel up any given y. Any help?
