Water Tank Problem

A tank is FULL of water. Find the WORK required to pump the water out of the spout.

*Use the fact that water weighs 62.5 lb/ft^3

a = 6
b = 9
c = 10

There is a ramp or triangle looking figure that I can't copy and paste.

I have found a similar problem as this one but it uses a circular cylinder and the figure I have is not.

I would like to ask the forum with some help setting this up and perhaps a formula or formulas that I should be looking at.

Thank You.

Hi Forum,

I actually read more about this specific problem in my textbook. It is fairly detailed but I now have it referenced and only problem I have is that all the problems like the one above are using a right cylinder cone. The problem I posted above does not give the shape of the tank so I am a bit perplexed.

Any help would be great. thx!
