Unformatted text preview: with a vertical gate that is usually kept closed. (a) What is the maximum pressure in the reservoir? Where does it occur? (b) For the conditions illustrated, what force must the applied at the base of the gate to keep the gate closed? Rectangular Gate ρ = 1000 kg/m 3 ρ = 1005 kg/m 3 15 m 15 m 2 m 1.5 m F Close up of Gate: Gate, Hinged at Top Problem 2 (25 points): Two open tanks are arranged in series as shown, with the outflow from each tank behaving as a free jet. The crosssectional area of each tank is 100 m 2 , and the jets have crosssectional area of 1 m 2 . Both tanks are open to the atmosphere, and all of the outflow from tank 1 enters tank 2. At a particular time, the depth in tank 2, h 2 , is 10 m, and is increasing at a rate of 1 cm/s. Based on this information, determine the depth in tank 1, h 1 , at that time. h 1 h 2...
