Unformatted text preview: Cl€e Jos- _Uw#/ -1,, 1-+,>*, 2,64 Gate ABC in Fig. P2.64 has a fixed hinge at B and is 2 m rvide into the paper. If the water level is high enough. the gate r'vill open. Compute the depth ft for rvhich this happens. Solution: Let H = (h - I meter) be the depth down to the level AB. The fbrces on AB and BC are shown in the fieebodi' at right. The moments ofthese forces about B are equal rvhen the gate opens: I M u = 6 = 7 H ( 0 . 2 ) b ( 0 . 1 ) r H , / H ) = v ] : l ( F I b ) l - | ' \ 2 ' \ 3 ' , o r : H = 0 . 3 4 6 m , h = H + 1 = 1 . 3 4 6 m A n s .
