The reservoir shown below has a rectangular gate that is 4 m wide (normal to the page) and weighs 100 kg. The gate is hinged at point B and makes an angle of 45° with the horizontal. A force F is applied at the center of the gate, normal to it, in order to open it. The water density is given as p = 1000 kg/m³. For the value of height H use the last digit of your student number in m. If the last digit is 0, then use H = 5 m. 1 m B F H m A 45° Please answer the following questions: a. Determine the hydrostatic force acting on the gate. [10 marks] b. Determine the minimum force F required to open the water gate. [15 marks]
