LAST NAME:___________________________ FIRST NAME:________________ SECTION:______ INSTRUCTIONS: Closed book, closed notes, calculator allowed. 1. (5 points) You are given a crown and asked to determine whether it is made of pure gold. You find that the crown weighs 37.91 N in air and 35.96 N in water. First, derive an expression for the density of the crown. Second, assuming that ρ Water =1000 kg/m 3 and ρ Gold =19320 kg/m 3 , determine whether the crown is made of pure gold. (Assume purity if the density deviation is less than 1%.) EGN3353C Fluid Mechanics Spring 2010 Exam 1 Continue with your answer on the back of this page if necessary

2. A car has fallen into a river and sunk to the riverbed. The car doors are rectangular with height a=0.95 m and width b=0.60 m. The water height above the top edge of the door is h=0.050 m. The pressure inside the car is taken to be atmospheric. Use ρ Water =1000 kg/m 3 and g=9.81 m/s 2 . a. (5 points) Using the direct integration approach , determine the force required to open the door, assuming that there is no water in the car, and that the driver

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
