Subject: Re: AAE 333 HW From: Student Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2009 21:28:09 -0400 To: "Marc H. Williams" <wiliams@purdue.edu> Sir, Regards again to #1. I've solved for "H" = Weight/(Area*rho*g) + H(door) Since the block is 3*3 can we assume the H(door) is 3? We've looked through and its not possible to back subsitute to get this value or can we leave it in terms of H(door). OR are we susposed to solve part B to get this value and back subsititute? I know its a lot of questions! Sorry! Or you can call *******! Student Quoting "Marc H.

You know the weight &gt; &gt; and the dimensions of the door. You know the density of water and the &gt; &gt; acceleration of gravity. &gt; &gt; I cant think of anything else you need to determine the height of water &gt; &gt; the door would support. &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; -- &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt; &gt;...
