A jet of water , 50mm diameter , with a velocity of 18m/s , strikes a flat plate inclined at 25 degree to the axis of jet as shown in figure, Determine the normal force , P exerted on the plate when plate is stationary .
The Attempt at a Solution
in the diagram attached , i found that the angle between the water velocity make an angle of 65 degree to the normal of the plate ,
so my ans is F = ρA(v)(v cos theta) = 1000(pi)( [(50x10^-3) / 2 ] ^2 ) (18^2)(cos 65) = 278.7 N , is my working correct ? i don't have the ans
