Unformatted text preview: Calculate the equilibrium height, H, when both legs of the U-tube are open to the atmosphere. P.2 3 A rectangular gate (width w = 2m) is hinged as shown, with a stop on the lower edge. At what depth H will the gate tip? P.3 4 The gate shown is 1.5 m wide and pivoted at O ; a = 1.0 m-2 , D = 1.30 m, and H = 1.40 m. Determine (a) the magnitude and moment of the vertical component of the force about O , and (b) the horizontal force that must be applied at the point A to hold the gate in position. P.4 0.65 m...
