(1) Force Of Jet Impinging Normally On A Fixed Plate
Consider a jet of water impinging normally on a fixed plate as shown in fig-1.

Let,
• v = Velocity of jet
• a = Cross sectional area of the jet
• w = Specific weight of water
Mass of water flowing/s = Capture kg
We know that the velocity of jet, in its original direction, is reduced to zero after the impact (as the plate is fixed). Therefore force exerted by the jet on the plane.

(2)Force Of Jet Impinging On An Inclined Fixed Plate
Consider a jet of water impinging normally on a fixed plate as shown in fig-2.
Capture
Let,
• Ɵ = Angle at which the plate is inclined with the jet
Force exerted by the jet on the plane = Capture KN
Force exerted by the jet in a direction normal to the plate,
Capture
and the force exerted by the jet in the direction of flow,
Capture
Similarly. force exerted by the jet in a direction normal to flow,

(3)Force Of Jet Impinging On A Moving Plate
Consider a jet of water imping normally on a plate. As a result of the impact of the jet, let the plate move in the direction of the jet as shown in fig-3.
Capture
Let, = Velocity of the plate, as a result of the impact of jet
A little conversation will show that the relative velocity of the jet with respect to the plate equal to (V-v) m/s.
For analysis purposes, it will be assumed that the plate is fixed and the jet is moving with a velocity of (V-v) m/s. Therefore force exerted by the jet,

(4)Force Of Jet Impinging On A Moving Curved Vane

Consider a jet of water entering and leaving a moving curved vane as shown in fig-4.
Capture
Let,
• V = Velocity of the jet (AC), while entering the vane,
• V1 = Velocity of the jet (EG), while leaving the vane,
• v1, v2 = Velocity of the vane (AB, FG)
• α = Angle with the direction of motion of the vane, at which the jet enters the vane,
• β = Angle with the direction of motion of the vane, at which the jet leaves the vane,
• Vr = Relative velocity of the jet and the vane (BC) at entrance (it is the vertical difference between V and v)
• Vr1 = Relative velocity of the jet and the vane (EF) at exit (it is the vertical difference between v1 and v2)
• Ɵ = Angle, which Vr makes with the direction of motion of the vane at inlet (known as vane angle at inlet),
• β = Angle, which Vr1 makes with the direction of motion of the vane at outlet (known as vane angle at outlet),
• Vw = Horizontal component of V (AD, equal to ). It is a component parallel to the direction of motion of the vane (known as velocity of whirl at inlet),
• Vw1 = Horizontal component of V1 (HG, equal to ). It is a component parallel to the direction of motion of the vane (known as velocity of whirl at outlet),
• Vf = Vertical component of V (DC, equal to ). It is a component at right angles to the direction of motion of the vane (known as velocity of flow at inlet),
• Vf1 = Vertical component of V1 (EH, equal to ). It is a component at right angles to the direction of motion of the vane (known as velocity of flow at outlet),
• a = Cross sectional area of the jet.
As the jet of water enters and leaves the vanes tangentially, therefore shape of the vanes will be such that Vr and Vr1 will be along with tangents to the vanes at inlet and outlet.
The relations between the inlet and outlet triangles (untill and unless given) are:
(i)V=v1 , and
(ii) Vr=Vr1
We know that the force of jet, in the direction of motion of the vane,

Example – Force of jet impinging on a moving plate
Problem:
(1). A jet of water of 50 mm diameter, moving with a velocity of 26 m/s is impinging normally on a plate. Determine the pressure on the plat, when (a) it is fixed and (b) it is moving with a velocity of 10 m/s in the direction of the jet.
Workings:
Given,
• d = 50 mm = 0.05 m
• V = 26 m/s
• v = 10 m/s
