A closed tank, rectangular in plan with vertical sides, is 1.8m deep and contains water to a depth of 1.2m. The enclosed space above the water is pressurized with air up to 35kPa. If the length of one wall of the tank is 3m, determine the resultant force on this wall and the height of the centre of pressure above the base.
