I have this really tough project to do, and I could use some help getting started... What I need to do is find the surface area of this "filter" in the picture. Then I also need to find the energy requirements to force the water through the system. I think with this I'll just need to figure out the work integral for the pump that would be driving the system. Any ideas/suggestions on how to do this would be GREATLY appreciated as I'm trying to finish this by tomorrow (Thursday) morning. Thanks!!!
