The pressure force on the bottom of the foam is then ( 29 l L gh p 2 ) ( 0 0 + and is directed up. The pressure on each side is not constant; the force can be found by integrating, or using the result of Problem 14.44 or Problem 14.46. Although these problems found forces on vertical surfaces, the result that the force is the product of the average pressure and the
