Can you finish the integration?.
I need help determining the hydrostatic force of the following problem:
An equilateral triangle with sides 3 m is submerged vertically in water so that the base is even with the surface. Express the hydrostatic force against one side of the plate as an integral and evaluate it.
I know that the pressure is 1000 kg/m^3 * 9.8m/s^2, but I can't figure out how to determine the rest....
