Homework Statement



Hi i know how to do these problems but its calculating the weight of the fluid, which you have to do to minus it from the vertical force.

But in the solutions to the problem is say that the volume is R^2 - Pie *(R^2)/4 *1

The only thing i want to know is why is that the volume because ive never seen anything like it and if it is correct is it in all the problems so i can just remeber it.


Cheers

Hi febbie22! :smile:

(have a pi: π and try using the X2 tag just above the Reply box :wink:)

Can you give us more detail about this problem?

(and there's no way that R2 - πR2/4 can be a volume … it's obviously an area :confused:)

I can't find that formula … which page is it on? :confused:

(and it's spelt rho, and you must have missed out an h … that's still an area!)
