A trough is 8 meters long, 3 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 3 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.)
