Find the hydrostatic force on the following plates submerged
in water as shown in each image. In each
case consider the top of the blue “box” to be the surface of the water in which
the plate is submerged. Note as well
that the dimensions in many of the images will not be perfectly to scale in
order to better fit the plate in the image.
The lengths given in each image are in meters.
plate in this case is the top half of a diamond formed from a square whose
sides have a length of 2.
