Solution

## The correct option is D h=d/2If we fill the cylinder upto a height h, the force exerted on at the bottom of the cylinder would be equal to F = PAF=ρgh×πd2/4Similarly, the average force exerted along the sides of the cylinder will be because of half the height filled for the cylinder.Therefore, F=ρgh/2×πdhEquating the 2 forces, and solving for h, gives h = d/2
