A little fluid statics question

  1. May 20, 2007 #1

    When finding the force required to hold the dish in place, do I have to take account for both of the "jets" going out from center?

    I mean, there will be two forces in the negative x direction because of the water jet right?

    I hope the question is clear enough :redface:

    What's the net change in momentum due to all the streams? There's 2 from the jets, but what about the "main" pipe?
