Determine the pressure point for hydrostatic force, Mechanical Engineering

The 300 kg, 8-m-wide rectangular gate shown in the figure is hinged at B and leans against the floor at A making an angle of 60° with the horizontal. The gate is to be open from its lower edge by applying force a normal force at its centre. Determine the minimum force, F required to open the gate and determine the pressure point for the hydrostatic force.
