Question

3. The bottle of champagne (specific gravity SG 0.96) is under pressure as shown by the mercury (specific gravity SG = 13.6) manometer reading. Compute the net force (horizontal,FH, and vertical, Fy) on the hemispherical end cap at the bottom of the bottle (magnitude of each component and direction in which it is acting). Workout the force in symbolic fashion by defining appropriate symbols for variables and heights and then compute the numeric answer.=
