What is the force on the bottom of the aquarium? 3 ft 2 ft 1 ft Force weight of water = density volume = 3 lb 62.5 2 ft 3 ft 1 ft ft = 375 lb =

If we had a 1 ft x 3 ft plate on the bottom of a 2 ft deep wading pool, the force on the plate is equal to the weight of the water above the plate . 3 lb 62.5 ft density 2 ft depth pressure 3 ft 1 ft area 375 lb = All the other water in the pool doesn’t affect the answer!

What is the force on the front face of the aquarium? 3 ft 2 ft 1 ft Depth (and pressure) are not constant. If we consider a very thin horizontal strip, the depth doesn’t change much, and neither does the pressure. 3 ft 2 ft 2 0 y dy 62.5 3 y F y dy = density depth area 2 0 62.5 3 F y dy = 2 2 0 187.5 2 F y = 375 lb = It is just a coincidence that this matches the first answer!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
