Working in 2d (axisymmetric) - is the force along a line the same as the force along a face?

I'm reducing a simulation I have setup into a 2d axisymmetric model, revolved around the Y axis. In my 3d model, I need a distributed force pushing upward on the bottom face of a cylinder.

For my 2d model, would I use the same force along the line that will become the bottom face? Or am I unknowingly multiplying the force many times over?
