Question: 4 a rectangular gate is hinged a distance l from...

Question details

4. A rectangular gate is hinged a distance L from its base and is W wide. It rests at an angle θ to the horizontal and holds back fluid density ρ as shown. Fluid rises to a depth H on the gate. SKETCH the pressure distribution on the gate and in tems of the parameters given determine: Fluid, ρ Gate, width W Hinge air (a) the maximum pressure on the gate? (b) the magnitude and direction of the force exerted by the water on the gate? (c) the depth H for the gate to open?
