A trough is 5 meters long, 1 meters wide, and 4 meters deep. The vertical cross-section of the trough parallel to an end is shaped like an isoceles triangle (with height 4 meters, and base, on top, of length 1 meters). The trough is full of water (density 1000 kg/m3 ). Find the amount of work in joules required to empty the trough by pumping the water out of an outlet that is located 3 meters above the top of the tank. See problem 21, page 464 of the text for a diagram of this trough configuration. (Note: Use g=9.8 m/s2 as the acceleration due to gravity.)
