## Homework Statement

A circular "pressure release gate" is located in the vertical face of a dam. The radius of the gate is 2 metres and the gate is positioned so that its top lies 5 metres below the surface of the water held in the reservoir behind the dam.Find the total fluid force acting on the door of the gate, when it is in a fully closed position.

## Homework Equations

Area= [tex]2\sqrt{4-x^2}[/tex] dy

Pressure = pg(5+x)

## The Attempt at a Solution

F= pg∫ [tex]2\sqrt{4-x^2}[/tex] (5+x) dy
