Question #202677

One of the tanks at the Cape Town aquarium is 4m high and has reinforced glass panels along two of the sides. The water in the tank has a density of 1028 kg/m^3. Determine the magnitude of the force on the glass per running meter analytically, as well as the height above the base where this force acts when the tank is 80% full. Now confirm your answer using the pressure distribution diagram method.
