Work Step by Step

We know that $P=P_{\circ}+\rho gh$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $P=101325+10^3\times 9.8\times 11\times 10^3=108MPa$ We also know that $R_{\circ}=\frac{D_{\circ}}{2}=\frac{121.8}{2}=60.9cm$ As $P=\frac{F}{A}$ $\implies F=PA$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $F=108MPa\times 4\pi R_{\circ}^2$ $F=108\times 10^6\times 4(3.1416)\times (0.609)^2$ $F=503MN$
