Question

A large vehicle in Fig. is slowed by lowering a $\textrm{2-m}$-wide scoop into a reservoir of water. Estimate the force exerted on the scoop if the vehicle is traveling at $60 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ and it scoops off $5 \mathrm{~cm}$ of water? The scoop diverts the water through $180^{\circ}$. (A) $720~\mathrm{kN}$ (B) $360 ~\mathrm{kN}$ (C) $12 ~\mathrm{kN}$ (D) $7.2 ~\mathrm{kN}$

Step 1

1 of 5List down the given data.

Given:

- Scoop width: $w = 2\ \text{m}$
- Velocity: $V = 60\ \dfrac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$
- Thickness of water scooped: $t = 5\ \text{cm} = 0.05\ \text{m}$
- Angle: $\theta = 180^{\circ}$

Required:

- Force exerted, $F_{\text{x}}$
