## 1. Find the horizontal and vertical components of the

total force acting on a curved surface AB, which is in the
form of a quadrant of a circle of radius 2m as shown in
the figure. Take the width of the gate 2m.

## 2. In the figure shown a gate having a quadrant shape of

radius 3m. Find the resultant force due to water per
meter length of the gate.

## 3. Determine the vertical and horizontal forces on the

cylinder shown in the figure. The cylinder is in
equilibrium.

## 4. Determine the resultant force on the segmental gate

shown in the figure

## 1. A rectangular pontoon 10 m long, 8m wide and 3m

deep weighs 6 × 105 N and carries a boiler of 4 m
diameter on its deck which weighs 4 × 105 N. The
centre of gravity of each may be taken to be at the
geometric centre. Determine the value of the meta
centric height of the combined unit when it floats in
river water.

2. A wooden cylinder having a specific gravity of 0.6 has a concrete cylinder of the same diameter of
0.2m length attached to it at one end. The specific gravity of the concrete is 2.5. Determine the length
of the wooden cylinder for the composite block to float vertically.
3. Two spheres, one heavier and weighing 12000N and a diameter
1.2m and the other lighter and weighing 4000N, are tied with a
rope and placed in water. It was found that the spheres floated
vertically with the lighter sphere just submerging. Determine the
diameter of the lighter sphere and the tension on the rope.

## 4. Determine the diameter of the sphere to open a

cylindrical gate hinged at the top and connected to the
sphere as shown in figure when the water level reaches 6
m above the centre of the gate. The gate weighs 4500 N
and its centroid coincides with the centroid of the
semicircle. The sphere weighs 1500 N/m3. The width of
the gate is 1.5 m.
