Find the forces Fx and Fy required to hold the tank shown in the figure below stationary.The pipe diameter D is not given, but it is the diameter required for a constant water level.Since the tank is anchored, it will not slide on a surface (i.e., no static friction from the tank resting on a surface), and the pipe is open to the atmosphere. The momentum of the incoming flow is dissipated in the tank and does not affect the outlet velocity. Neglect the weight of the tank, but not the weight of the water (60 °F). Assume no losses in the flow.
