I know that to find work: volume times density...but that's it. what else?
A trough is 5 meters long, 2.5 meters wide, and 5 meters deep. The vertical cross-section of the trough parallel to an end is shaped like an isoceles triangle (with height 5 meters, and base, on top, of length 2.5 meters). The trough is full of water (density ). Find the amount of work in joules required to empty the trough by pumping the water over the top. (Note: Use as the acceleration due to gravity.)
