Pressure at a centroi thermo fluids

  • #1
ive got this q in my homework calculate the pressure at the centroid and hence the force acting plate. the surface is free liquid is water.
ive using a formula l x e = y
l being length or depth in this case
e being value of water which i found to be 1 x 10 to power of 3 kg/m3
y being the pressure at the centroid


so in my case thats 5 x 1x10powerof 3= 50000n/m2

the to work out force on the plate ive used
pressure x area

so 50000 x 5 = 250Kn

have i gone horribly wrong?? doesnt seem right to me
