Fluid Mechanics Problems 2Consider a gate CD, which is shown below and can be (a) rectangular, (b) circular, and (c) triangular in shape. The gate is only hinged at the top, and has no support elsewhere. Find the moment to be applied at the hinge in each case to keep the gate in equilibrium. Density of water = 1,000 kg/m3.
