4 . If the ellipse is rotated 90 degrees, the area moment of inertia about the axis of ME 311 Reading Guide #8 1/2 rotation becomes I xx = ba3
4 . True of false. Assume that the gravity acts toward the bottom of the page for both cases. 12. Which of the two equations, Equation 415 or Equation 417, is applicable to a flat surface on which the atmosphere acts on both the back surface and the top of the free surface of the fluid in which the flat plate is submerged. _________________________________ Section 4.2.5: Fluid Statics: Buoyancy 1. A body that is either submerged or is floating in a fluid will experience a vertical buoyant force equal to the ________________ of the fluid it displaces. 2. The center of the buoyant force of a submerged body must coincide with the center of the gravity of the submerged body. True or false 3. The center of the buoyant force of a floating body must coincide with the center of the gravity of the floating body. True or false (Challenging question. Consider a barge with an unequalled distribution of weight.) 4. If a body is floating between two fluids, say fluid A and fluid B, how is the buoyant force calculated? _______________________________________________________ Section 4.4: Conservation of Mass for an Open System 1. Mass may cross the boundary of an open system. True or false 2. If more mass enters a control volume than leaves the same control volume, such as occurs in the filling of a balloon in which the mass leaving is zero, then there is a positive rate of change of mass inside the balloon. True or false 3. The (a) transient or (b) steadystate form of the conservation of mass would be used to solve the type of problem noted in question #2 above. __________ 4. Mathematically define mass flow rate. m = ________________________________________ 5. In the equation written above for mass flow rate, V represents velocity, which is assumed to be ____________________________ over the entire crosssectional flow area, denoted by _______. 6. If the rate of change of mass inside the control volume is zero (i.e., the amount of mass inside the control volume does not change with time), as is the case that occurs for flow through a nozzle, the mass flow is considered to be __________________________________.
