Unformatted text preview: curve is equal to the force Fy divided by the length of the prism d) Plot the pressure (measured from the lowest vertex) as a function of y around the perimeter of the prism. Show that the area enclosed by the curve is equal to the force -Fx divided by the length of the prism 2. Consider the same prism as in 1 with the same point down orientation. But now the prism is only partially submerged. Suppose the weight of the prism is 10 N. Taking g as 10 m/s^2 and the density of water as 1gm/cc, calculate how low in the water the prism will sit ie the distance between the water surface and the lowest vertex....
