  1. The hydrostatic pressure is proportional to the height from the surface.
    Force is pressure x area.
    Net force is zero, since there is no movement.
    Total force probably means the sum of all the scalar values of forces acting on the cylinder.

    For this, you will need to integrate lateral forces over the surface of the cone, and add to the downward force acting on the base.
