pressure=dgh, d=1000kg/m^3, h=6m, g=9.8m/s^2, area=pi*r2,r=2cm,friction force=pressure*area

Friction=force applied 
So, force applied= area×pressure 
R= d\2= 0.04/2=0.02m
Area= pie× R*2=3.14×0.02×0.02=0.001256m*2
And pressure=P2- P1=P0+ rho×g×h - P0= rho× g× h= 1000×10×6=60000
Therefore, force applied= friction = area× pressure
                                           =0.001256×60000
                                            =75.36N

Dear student 
Above ans are incorrect 
P = rho * g*h 
= 58800N/m^2
Splug = pi*R^2 
Magnitude of the frictional force b/n plug and pipe wall
F = S* P = 295.41N 
V = sqrt(2*g*h)
=7.67 m/s
