BEE 331 Bio-Fluid Mechanics HW # 2 1. A container, filled with water at 20˚C, is open to the atmosphere on the right side. Find the pressure of the air in the enclosed space on the left side of the container. 0.6 m Air 2 1 m 1 2 a. Determine the resultant force and the center of pressure due to the water acting on the 1m (perpendicular to the paper) by 2m rectangular area AB shown in the diagram below. 1.0 m 1.22 m 2.0 2b. Determine the resultant force and the center of pressure due to the water acting on the 1.25m (perpendicular to the paper) by 2.0m triangular area CD shown in the figure above. The apex of the triangle is at C.

Unformatted text preview: 3. A gate in the form of a partial cylindrical surface (called a Tainter gate) holds back water on top of a dam as shown in the figure. The radius of the surface is 22 ft, and its length is 36 ft. The gate can pivot about point A, and the pivot point is 10 ft above C. Determine the magnitude of the resultant water force on the gate. Will the resultant pass through the pivot? 4. A 9-ft-long cylinder floats in oil and rests against a wall. Determine the horizontal force the cylinder exerts on the wall at the point of contact, A. Point A is at the same level as the center of the circle....
