A large fish tank contains seawater ( γ = 64 lb/ft 3 ) to a depth of 10 ft. To repair some damage to
one corner of the tank, a triangular section is replaced with a new section as illustrated.
Determine the force vector the sea water exerts on the triangular area and express the force line of
action in parametric form. Place your coordinate system at the bottom corner of the triangle, with
the z-axis pointing up, the y-axis toward the right, and the x-axis pointing out of the tank.
