27.41: a) The force on the straight section along the – x -axis is zero. For the half of the semicircle at negative x the force is out of the page. For the half of the semicircle at positive x the force is into the page. The net force on the semicircular section is zero. The force on the straight section that is perpendicular to the plane of the figure is
