Question: a 4m long quartercircular gale of radius 3 m and...

Question details

A 4m long quarter-circular gate of radius 3 m and negligible weight is hinged at A as shown. The gate controls the level of water. Determine a) The magnitude and direction of the resultant hydrostatic force (FR and 6) and also show the direction of force on the figure. b) The minimum spring force required to keep the gate closed when water level rises to A. Density of water is 1000 kg/m 3m Spring
