. ± ² ³ Consider a channel of height 2 R with rectangular cross-section as shown in the sketch. A hinged plank of a length L < R and at an angle θ is located at the center of the channel. (You may assume that L is small compared to the length perpendicular to the sketch.) The plank has a mass per unit width, m . A constant volume flux per unit width, Q , of an inviscid, incompressible fluid is applied at the inlet of the channel. a.) Find all equilibrium values for θ (include BOTH stable and unstable equilibria!) To simplify your calculation, you may assume that we have chosen the mass, m , and volume flux, Q , such that for at least one equilibrium state, θ is small. b.) Which values of θ from part (a) represent stable equilibria? Which are unstable? Justify your answers.
