The vertical surface of a reservoir dam that is in contact with the water is 200 m wide and 14 m high. The air pressure is one atmosphere. Find the magnitude of the total force acting on this surface in a completely filled reservoir. (Hint: The pressure varies linearly with depth, so you must use an average pressure.)
