Unformatted text preview: horizontal = 1.34N upward, F vertical = 14.81N to the left) CSUS ENGR132 ZHOU ft) 4. A horizontal water jet at 70F issues from a circular orifice in a large tank. The jet strikes a vertical plate that is normal to the axis of the jet. A force of 500lbf is needed to hold the plate in place against the action of the jet. If the pressure in the tank is 25 psig at point A, what is the diameter of the jet just downstream of the orifice? (Answer: 0.30 5. A cone that is held stable by a wire is free to move in the vertical direction and has a jet of water striking it from below. The cone weighs 30N. The initial speed of the jet as it comes from the orifice is 15m/s, and the initial jet diameter is 2 cm. Find the height to which the cone will rise and remain stationary. NOTE: the wire is only for stability and should not enter into your calculations. (Answer: 3.21m)...
