Question

Two streams merge to form a river. One stream has a width of 8.4 m, depth of 3.5 m, and current speed of 2.2 m/s. The other stream is 6.6 m wide and 3.6 m deep, and flows at 2.7 m/s. If the river has width 11.2 m and speed 2.8 m/s, what is its depth

Answer:Explanation:We shall solve this problem on the basis of pinciple that water is incompressible so volume of flow will be equal at every point .

rate of volume flow of one stream

= cross sectional area x velocity

= 8.4 x 3.5 x 2.2 = 64.68 m³ /s

rate of volume flow of other stream

= 6.6 x 3.6 x 2.7

= 64.15 m³ /s

rate of volume flow of rive , if d be its depth

= 11.2 x d x 2.8

= 31.36 d

volume flow of river = Total of volume flow rate of two streams

31.36 d = 64.15 + 64.68

31.36 d = 128.83

d = 4.10 m /s .
