This Applet is a visualization tool that simulates an experiment performed in the lab section of CE319F (Fluids). The Applet will calculate the weight needed to keep the apparatus in equilibrium so that the experimental pressure force can be calculated by statics. This experimental force can then be compared to the theoretical pressure force that is calculated based on the water height. The Applet, also, calculates the maximum pressure at the bottom of the tank (Max Pressure) and the total pressure force acting on the face of the apparatus (Pressure Force), so you can compare your calculations to the Applet's.

The lab set-up is displayed below and all dimensions are labeled. The Applet will ignore all water heights that are greater than 9 in. or less than 0.0001 in.

Forces acting on the apparatus

To use the Applet type in a new water height and press enter, or drag the water to the desired height. All other commands will be ignored.
