Q. 2) a) A vertical gap 23.5 mm wide of infinite extent contains oil of specific gravity 0.95 and viscosity of 2.45 N-s/m2. A metal plate 1.5 m x 1.5 m x 1.5 mm thickness weighing 49 N is to be lifted through the gap at a constant speed of 0.1 m/s. Estimate the force required. (10M)

b) A tank contains water up to a height of 0.5 m above the base. An immiscible liquid of sp. Gravity 0.8 is filled on the top of water up to 1m in height. Calculate (i) total pressure on one side of tank (ii) the position of centre of pressure for one side of the tank which is 2m wide. (10M)
