The tank shown in the figure is 3 m wide into the paper. Neglect atmospheric pressure. Use ?????? = 9.79 kN/m³. Determine the following: A. vertical component of the total hydrostatic force on the quarter circle panel AB in kN B. Resultant hydrostatic force acting on the quarter circle panel AB in kN C. Angle that the resultant hydrostatic force make with the horizontal in degrees.
Figure shows a semi-conical buttress. Calculate the total hydrostatic force acting on the surface of this semi-conical buttress. show the free body diagram.
A horizontal bend in a pipeline conveying 1m^3/s of water gradually reduces from 600mm to 300mm in diameter and deflects the flow through an angle of 60 degrees. At the larger end, the pressure is 170kN/m^2. Determine the magnitude of the force exerted on the bend.
