Yeah this question was actually one question from a exam for my course, im studying civil engineering (one of benefits as you mentioned is that the math is applied).
How would you find the area of the shape above A, im asking as i tried subtracting A from the area of the entire semi circle, but in order to find B we need to take into account the area above/next to A.
That is part of the problem, i know how to do this for when the curved surfaces is fully submerged, but for this type of question i dont know how to do it.
Thanks for your reply, what I normally do is use F = pgha to find horizontal component of the force, then use F = phv to find vertical component forces, then I find out the actual force using F^2 = FH^2 + FV^2. However the problem I’m having is finding the vertical component as I don’t know how...
Hi, i would like to know how to do this question for fluid mechanics. Sorry as im new i didnt know how to upload images so i just uploaded the image in justpaste, here is the link http://justpaste.it/pz7r
