A small dam is constructed across a stream. vertical cross section of the stream is y=2x^2. the dam is 4 ft tall. Set up and evaluate an integral that estimates the hydrostatic force on the damn when the water is all the way to the top. Force=Pressure*Area and Water weighs 62.5lb/cubic foot.

I am trying to figure out the length across the top of the dam. Well, you already have an integral on your diagram, I am trying to set up an integral from scratch.

ok. the length across the top is \[2\sqrt{2}\]

This is my hail mary: integral 0 to 4, (62.5pi/9)*4x^2 dx. Let's hope we're right or anyone on the other side is going to drown.
