I am new to solidworks and i am having trouble with my project.


I have a tank where there is a very viscous fluid, like a cosmetic cream and because of that viscosity it wont flow out without help. i have an electric piston that pushes the fluid out, but i need to know what force is needed to push it out so i can choose an adequate linear actuator. i watched a lot of tutorials and i can´t find something that helps me


I hope i asked my question clearly. I really need help.
