B C As a part of the design of a new sailboat, it is desired to
determine the drag force which may be expected at a given
60o 20o
speed. To do so, a model of the proposed hull is placed in a
test channel and three cables are used to keep its bow on
Flow A the centerline of the channel. Dynamometer reading indicate
that for a given speed, the tension is 200 N in cable AB and
E 300 N in cable AE. Determine the drag force exerted on the
hull and the tension in cable AC.
