Question details

A thin, homogeneous gate with mass 90 lbm has triangular shape. The gate is hinged at the bottom, and sealed along its sides within the reservoir wall (not shown) when closed. The hinge allows the gate to rotate counter-clockwise to allow liquid (SG 1.1) to escape (at the apex of the triangle and along its sides). Compute horizontal force R (lbf) for which the gate will begin to open. Sketch the pressure distribution on the gate air Liquid SG 1.1 air Plan 500 Hinge b- 2.2 m
