Chapter 3, Problem 3.47P, Water pressure acting on the vertical wall of the concrete dam varies linearly with the depth of the

To determine

The resultant force caused by the water.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Water pressure varies linearly with the depth of water.

Calculations:

The resultant force caused by the water will be equal to the volume under the load surface.

   R=volume under the load surfaceor,R=0.5(58.9)(32)(6)R=5650N

And it will be a normal force that will act at the centroid of the load volume:
