Fluid Mechanics - Air Pressure/ Prism

  • #1
Hello

How would you calculate the total force (due to air pressure) on the top face of a prism, which is partially immersed in water? The top face is horizontal. What formula do you use?

Thank you.

Force equals pressure times area. The pressure to use would be whatever the local pressure is. More information is needed from you to determine what the local pressure is.
