Unformatted text preview: 09/16/09 Professor Philip S. Marcus ME106 Problem Set 3 All problems due in class Wednesday September 23, 2009 Do Munson (6 th Edition) problems: 2.67, 2.73, 2.82, 2.87, and 2.95. O1) Figure a shows a tank with bottom crosssectional area α is filled with a fluid of density ρ 1 ( z ) = ρ b ( z z ), where ρ , b and z are constants. The pressure P ( z ) in the tank obeys dP dz = ρ 1 g . Outside the tank the pressure is P out and is constant. The shaded plate of area A is symmetrical about the two dashed lines parallel to the x and z axes, The total force on the plate due to the fluids inside and outside the tank is F = f ˆ y . The geometric center C of the plate (the place where the dashed lines cross) is at ( X C ,Y C ,Z C ), and the point labeled G is at ( X G ,Y G ,Z G ). The torque at C is Γ C , so by Lecture 8, the torque at G is Γ G = Γ C + [( X G X C ) ˆ x + ( Y G Y C ) ˆ y + ( Z G Z c ) ˆ z ] × F . (1) We now add a layer of lighter fluid with density ρ 2 ( z ) = ρ L e az and with total mass 1 M...
