The attachment shows a side section of a water tank.(lined with Marine Ply)
The section will be bolted to a fixed bottom section with 4 bolts.
I'm trying to determine the size and strength of bolts required to do this.
My attempt at starting this problem is shown in the attachment...
30 kg - 215kg = -185kg or 185 kg
Multiplying this x 9.81 to get force = 1815N
I am unsure what you mean here.
What I did was make an integral for the Force with repsect to distance:
∫_0^xm▒( F)(x)dx
=1815 [x^2/2]_0^(.6)
=326.7 N
"Add the amount of work it takes to get the block...

I am trying to determine the force required to displace water as shown in the attached picture.
My problems here are that I am displacing water using a vertical plunger moving downward at 25cm/sec also as seen in the picture the plunger is at 45degrees.
I am confused as to how to calculate...
I'm looking for a right angled dual output shaft gearbox like the one attached
I cant find one anywhere, just parallel dual shaft gearboxes.
Anyone know a supplier or website for these?
Do they even exist?
I am trying to determine the power requirements for an AC Motor for a Plunger type wave maker.
Attached is the layout of the plunger and tank.
The formulas that I think might be involved in solving this problem are below:
P.E = mgh
W= F x d
Power= W/time
Pressure= F/ area
What I...
Homework Statement
I am building a tank to produce waves.
I have two options to power the flap that will be produced to create the waves:
1. Pneumatic system
2. Motor and Cam system
Before I can order motors or pneumatic air cylinders I need to know what force will be required to move...
