hi guys.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

got another question for ya.

........................................

seems to of uploaded small but i explain.

a reservoir is designed to retain water to a max depth of 10metres. if the water level exceeds 10 metres, then a hinged semi circle gate will open to release any excess water. the gate has a radius of 1m. the gate is hinged 9 metres below the free surface.

what would be the force required to open gate?

what is the depth from the free surface to the the centre of pressure.

........................................

i know the second moment of area of a semi circular surface is 0.1102R4

but not sure how to complete the question. help with working out the answer would be much appraicated so i can work back on the answer and see how to get it.

thanks
