a sluice gate consists of a quadriant of a circle of radius 1.5m pivoted at its center 0. When the water is level with the gate, calculate the magnitude and direction of the resultant hydrostatic force on the gate and the moment required to open the gate.The width of the gate is 3m and it's mass 6tonnes
