The 300 kg, 8-m-wide rectangular gate shown in the figure is hinged at B and leans against the floor at A making an angle of 60° with the horizontal. The gate is to be open from its lower edge by applying force a normal force at its centre. Determine the minimum force, F required to open the gate and determine the pressure point for the hydrostatic force.
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and the question belongs to fluid mechanics. The question here is about application of hydrostatic force for moving a heavy object.
