Because the tank has an acceleration a (= 19.62 /s^2) towards right, the oil will experience a pseudo force towards left
Fp = m*a
where m is the mass of oil
volume of oil (V) = l*b*h = 4*3*2 = 24 m^3
mass of oil = d*V = 0.83*10^3 * 24 = 19.92*10^3 kg
where d is the density of oil
d = 0.83 * 10^3 kg/m^3
the weight of oil ...
