How to Calculate Resultant Force Acting on Horizontal Rectangular Surface?
Resultant Force Acting on Horizontal Rectangular Surface calculator uses Resultant Force = (Absolute Pressure above Liquid+(Density of Fluid*[g]*Vertical Distance of Point from Free Surface))*(Width of Rectangular Plate*Height of Rectangular Plate) to calculate the Resultant Force, The Resultant Force Acting on Horizontal Rectangular Surface formula is defined as the function of Absolute Pressure above the Liquid, Density of Fluid, gravitational acceleration, vertical distance from free surface, Width of Rectangular Plate and Height of rectangular plate. The pressure distribution on a submerged horizontal surface is uniform and it acts through the midpoint of the plate. Resultant Force is denoted by F_{R} symbol.
How to calculate Resultant Force Acting on Horizontal Rectangular Surface using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Resultant Force Acting on Horizontal Rectangular Surface, enter Absolute Pressure above Liquid (P_{o}), Density of Fluid (ρ_{Fluid}), Vertical Distance of Point from Free Surface (h), Width of Rectangular Plate (a) & Height of Rectangular Plate (b) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Resultant Force Acting on Horizontal Rectangular Surface calculation can be explained with given input values -> 2.3E+6 = (101325+(1.225*[g]*4.5))*(3.6*6.3).
