Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A = pi * r^2 = 144 * pi Say the thickness is dz So dV = A dz = 144 * pi dz dF = (rho) dV = 144 * pi * (rho) dz dW = d F z = 144 * pi * (rho) z dz The upper layer of water must be lifted 1 ft over the top rim of the pool, whereas the layer at the bottom must be lifted 5 ft. Therefore, the work required to empty the swimming pool of water is \[W = \int\limits_{1}^{5} dW = \int\limits_{1}^{5} 144(\rho)(\pi)zdz\] this is rho ^ the symbol that looks like a p Solve integral and you'll get 1728(rho)(pi) plug in density (62.5) for rho and you'll get the answer around 339,292 ftlb.
