Chapter 4, Problem 103P

Water, in a 100-mm-diameter jet with speed of 30 m/s to the right, is deflected by a cone that moves to the left at 14 m/s. Determine (a) the thickness of the jet sheet at a radius of 230 mm. and (b) the external horizontal force needed to move the cone.

A 2.8-in-diameter horizontal water jet having a velocity of 88 ft/s strikes a curved plate, which deflects the water 180° at the same speed. Ignoring the frictional effects, determine the force required to hold the plate against the water stream.
A 3-in-diameter horizontal water jet having a velocity of 90 ft/s strikes a curved plate, which deflects the water 180° at the same speed. Ignoring the frictional effects, determine the force required to hold the plate against the water stream.
A jet of water of diameter 75 mm moving with a velocity of 25 m/s strikes a fixed plate in such a way that the angle between the jet and plate is 60°. Determine the force exerted by the jet on the plate (i) in the direction normal to the plate and (ii) in the direction of the jet.
