Question details

. Water flowing at a hydroelectric dam passes through a penstock with a 45- degree bend as shown: Q-3000 fe The design flow rate is 3600 ft/s. Assume that the pressure at the bend entrance and exit is constant at 120 psi and that the weight of the water in the bend is 500,000 1b.
A) find the magnitude and direction of the horizontal force exerted on the bend.
B) find the magnitude and direction of the vertical force on the bend.
