2. A plate shaped as in the figure [picture.jpg is attached] is submerged vertically in a fluid as indicted. Find the fluid force on the plate if the fluid has weight density 62.4 lb/ft^3(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The integral I set up was the limits being -5 to -1 and the integral being (5-y)(-7/4y - 7/4) dy.

[Also on this one I was getting help on it yesterday on another thread...but the tutor seems to offline right now, and im hoping someone else can assist me to get this problem done]

I was told that the (-7/4y - 7/4) is correct but the (5-y) is not.

After many posts on the last thread I still can't figure out the depth.
