# A jet of water from a nozzle is deflected through an angle of 100° from its original direction by a curved plate as shown in figure. The fluid enters at an angle of 30° with horizontal with a velocity of 20 m/s. The plate is friction less and smooth. The nozzle diameter is 20 mm. Find out the magnitude and direction of resultant force if the curved plate is stationary.
