You'll have to show some work to get help.

And we have a homework section...moving.

well i am having difficulty for getting hc. since the resultant force (Fr) = specific weight X Hc X Area.

than i will need to find the Horizontal component at the wall and the reactions at hinge.

Anybody out there to help me with problem 1 from the link i have posted?

Fill that out, so that someone can see what your thinking.

Start by finding the centroid of the gate, then locating the center of pressure.
