Problem 20E

Show how to approximate the required work by a Riemann sum. Then express the work as an integral and evaluate it. A circular swimming pool has a diameter of 24 ft, the sides are 5 ft high, and the depth of the water is 4 ft. How much work is required to pump all of the water out over the side? Use the fact that water weighs 62.5lb/ft3.
