A steady laminar ﬂow of SAE 30W oil at
◦ C occurs between two horizontal plates. The upper

plate moves left at a velocity, ut (< 0, since it is to the left),
while the lower plate is stationary. The velocity proﬁle is
speciﬁed as

(a) Determine the magnitude of the ﬂuid shear stress at the lower plate.
(b) Determine the velocity at the location where the ﬂuid shear stress is zero.
Solution:
a) We need τ (y = 0) = µ(du/dy )y=0 . From the provided ﬁgure, we ﬁnd that, for SAE 30W
oil at 40◦ , µ ≈ 0.1 Ns/m2 . Taking the derivative of the velocity proﬁle,

For the manometer system shown in
ﬁgure, determine the diﬀerence in piezometric head
between points A and B, i.e., PA − PB , where P denotes the piezometric head. The manometer ﬂuid has
a speciﬁc gravity of 0.85.

points A and B, which is

pA − p1 = −γ (zA − z1 ) p1 − p2 = −γm (z1 − z2 ) p2 − pB = −γ (z2 − zB ) where the levels 1 and 2 are the manometer levels as shown, γ and γm are the speciﬁc weights
of water and the manometer ﬂuid respectively. As usual, we add these with the result that
pA − pB = −γ (zA − z1 ) − γm (z1 − z2 ) − γ (z2 − zB )

A closed pressurized vessel has a spout
that is closed by an 10in diameter circular gate that is
hinged along one side as shown in the ﬁgure. The vessel has a hemispherical dome of radius 1.8 ft. The base
of the dome is 1.5 ft above the hinge of the gate. The
dome experiences a resultant upwards force of magnitude
500 lbf due to hydrostatic pressure.
(a) Determine the magnitude of the force on the circular
gate due to hydrostatic pressure.
(b) Determine the line of action of the force on the circular
gate due to hydrostatic pressure. Sketch clearly the
location of the line of action relative to the center of
the gate.
(c) Determine the minimum torque necessary at the hinge in order to maintain the gate
closed (neglect the weight of the gate and any friction on the hinge).
Soln.: a) The dome experiences a net vertical upwards force, Fv = 500 lbf, which implies that
the level at which the pressure is zero can be determined as
Fv = γ V = γ [π R2 h∗ − (2/3)π R3 ] = 500 lbf where V is the volume, represented by the crosshatched region in the ﬁgure, above the curved
surface (the dome) to the zero pressure level , and h∗ is the distance from the base of the
dome to the zero pressure level (again, see ﬁgure). With R = 1.8 ft, we determine
(Fv /γ ) + (2/3)π R3
500 lbf/(62.4 lbf/ft3 ) + (2/3)π (1.8 ft)3
h=

π (1.8 ft)2
∗ With the zero pressure level determined, we apply our formulae for forces on plane surfaces.
The magnitude of the force is found as
F = γ hc A = 62.4 lbf/ft3 (h∗ + 1.5 ft + (3/5)(5/12) ft)π (5/12)2 ft2 = 127.2 lbf
where hc = (h∗ + 1.5 ft + (3/5)(5/12) ft) = 3.74 ft is the vertical distance (see ﬁgure) from the
zero pressure level to the centroid of the gate.

[hc /(3/5)]π rgate so the line of action or center of pressure lies a distance of 0.007 ft directly below the center
of gate (as shown). y is the distance from the origin, O, at the zero pressure level to the
centroid of the surface along the coordinate y aligned with the surface.
c) To solve the statics problem of determining the necessary torque, T , to keep the gate closed
against the hydrostatic pressure, we set the sum of moments about the hinge to zero:
T − F Lh = 0 =⇒ T = F Lh = 127.2 lbf × [(5/12) + 0.007] ft = 53.9 ft lbf where Lh = rgate + (ycp − y ) = 0.424 ft is the moment arm of the resultant hydrostatic force.
