Hydrostatic force incline plane

    I understand all the concepts, the only thing I dont know is were does Yc=hc/sin 60 comes from.
    Im kind of visual, if you could upload how you do it, it would help

    Where is Yc? Is it the hypoteneuse of the triangle with hc?

    Is ratio calculated just by dividing two things?

    That's the definition of 'ratio'.
