Horizontal hinge, Mechanical Engineering

2 x 2 m square gate opens clockwise on a horizontal hinge located at point A, which is 100 mm below the centroid of the gate. The gate sits against solid rubber blocks which create an effective pressure seal. The gate is designed to open from the top when the water exceeds a certain depth. To what depth h can the water rise without the gate opening at C?
