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.

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!
