Vertical component is due to (d).

Horizontal component is due to (c).

Apurva said: (Apr 9, 2016)  
Answer should be option B.

Yogesh said: (May 25, 2016)  
Option B should be the right answer.

Sonu Meena said: (Aug 5, 2016)  
For vertical component option is A.

For horizontal component option is B.

Vijay Thakur said: (Aug 12, 2016)  
The Horizontal component is due to B, and the Vertical component is D.

Shailendra Kumar said: (Oct 11, 2016)  
For horizontal force option B is correct and for Vertical force option D is correct.

Bappa Nandi said: (Oct 20, 2016)  
Force on a vertical projection of the curved surface is the right answer!

Baloch said: (Nov 1, 2016)  
For horizontal component:
Force on the vertical projection of the curved surface.

For vertical component:
Force on the horizontal projection of the curved surface.

Manish said: (Nov 20, 2016)  
I think the correct answer is option B.

Rajesh Bathula said: (Dec 16, 2016)  
Horizontal component force=pressure on projected area on the curved surface on the vertical plane = pr. * area = Weight retained by the liquid on the curved surface. Ans: D.

Harsha said: (Jan 13, 2017)  
B is the right answer.

Sunil Raikwar said: (Jan 19, 2017)  
Yes B is correct. I agree.

Tjs said: (Mar 12, 2017)  
B is the right one. I agree with it.

Jyoti Prakash said: (Mar 21, 2017)  
I think Option B is the correct answer.

Brijesh Patel said: (Apr 10, 2017)  
For a curved surface, the component of hydrostatic force in any horizontal direction is equal to the hydrostatic force on the projected plane surface on a vertical plane perpendicular to that direction and acts through the centre of pressure for the projected plane area. The vertical component of hydrostatic force on a submerged curved surface is equal to the weight of the liquid volume vertically above the submerged surface to the level of the free surface of liquid and acts through the centre of gravity of the liquid in that volume.

Mantoo said: (Sep 3, 2017)  
Answer B is the right answer.

Rinku Meena said: (Sep 6, 2017)  
B is absolutely right.

It is necessary to take components of forces in each direction is there any method to solve this.

Rhh said: (Nov 11, 2017)  
B is the right answer don't confuse.

Roy said: (Nov 23, 2017)  
B is the right answer. D for vertical component.

Suns said: (Dec 3, 2017)  
Yes, B is the right answer.

Jyoti said: (Dec 20, 2017)  
I think B is the right answer.

Rohit Kumar Shukla said: (Apr 6, 2018)  
B is the correct answer.

Vjjj said: (Apr 18, 2018)  
I think B is right.

For a curved surface, the component of hydrostatic force in any horizontal direction is equal to the hydrostatic force on the projected plane surface on a vertical plane perpendicular to that direction and acts through the centre of pressure for the projected plane area.

The vertical component of hydrostatic force on a submerged curved surface is equal to the weight of the liquid volume vertically above the submerged surface to the level of the free surface of liquid and acts through the centre of gravity of the liquid in that volume.
