Given = 0.4 lb s ft 2 and applying Newton's relation = du dy = u 2 u 1 y 2 y 1 = u 2 0 y 2 0 = V h = 0.4 lb s ft 2 0.7 ft s 0.18 12 ft = 18.67 lb ft 2 . b. Applying Newton's law F = ma then F = ma = A 18.67 lb ft 2 9 ft 2 = 420 lb 32.2 ft s 2 a a =− 12.88 ft s 2 . 2) dy dx = v u = y 2x dy y = dx 2x dy y = dx 2x ln y = 1 2 ln x ln C y = Cx 1 2 from given point (2,3) then C = 3 2 .

4) Keep in mind that the wet portion of the gate is considered, and there is no buoyancy force since the other side is the ambient air. The weight of the gate W = (7.85)(62.4 lbf/ft 3 )(15 ft)(1/12 ft)(6 ft) = 3674 lbf.
