The concrete "gravity" dam is held in place by its own weight. If the density of concrete is ρc and water has a density ρw, determine the smallest dimension d that will prevent the dam from overturning about its end A.

Units Used:

Mg = 103 kg

Given:

ρc = 2.5Mg/m3

ρw = 1.0Mg/m3

h = 6 m

g = 9.81m/s2
