ME 3720 HOMEWORK SET-3 DUE: 10/04/10 1. A circular 2-m diameter gate is located on the sloping side of a swimming pool. The side of the pool is oriented 60 ° relative to the horizontal bottom, and the center of the gate is located 3-m below the water surface. Determine the magnitude of the water force acting on the gate and the point through which it acts . 2. A homogeneous 4-ft wide, 8-ft long rectangular gate weighing 800-lb is held in a place by a horizontal flexible cable as shown. Water acts against the gate that is hinged at point A. Friction in the hinge is negligible. Determine the tension in the cable . 3. An area in the form of an isosceles triangle with base of 6-ft and altitude of 8-ft lies in the plane forming one wall of a tank containing a liquid having specific weight of 79.8-lb/ft 3 . The side sloped upward makes an angle of 60 ° with the horizontal. The base of the triangle is horizontal and the vertex is above the base. Determine the resultant force the fluid exerts on the area
