Please complete the following according to the 6 Step Problem Solving Method discussed extensively in class:

A steady 2-dimensional water jet, 4 cm thick with a weight flow rate of 1960 N/s, strikes an angled barrier (depth of the

barrier into the paper is 1 m) as shown (Please note: do not use this image - please draw your own schematic with axes).

Assume no friction (pressure and water speed are constant everywhere). Thirty percent of the jet flow rate passes through the

slot, and the rest splits symmetrically along the barrier. Determine the following:

• Calculate the horizontal forte F (N) required to hold the barrier stationary.

• If the barrier is moving to the right at 5 m/s, calculate the horizontal force F (N) required (neglect all other forces).
