# Fluid Mechanics: Hydrostatic Force on a Plane

When calculating hydrostatic force on a plane you have to realize that the pressure along the plane can change based on its relationship to the fluids depth. To calculate the resultant force equation 1 would be used. Also, to find the location of the resultant force on the plane equations 2-3 would be used.
