1. What is the maximum
depth of water in this hypothetical stream?
meters
2. At what
actual depth should the velocity sensor be set to record the
average velocity? ( Remember that the average velocity is
best measured at 6/10^{th's} of the total depth.)
m
3. What is the average
velocity of this stream, as measured by the virtual stadia
rod and velocity sensor?
m/sec
4 . What is the distance
on the tape of the left edge of stream? (Note that the edge
of the stream is NOT at "0.0" on the tape.)
m
5 . What
is the distance on the tape of the right edge of the stream?
m
6 . Compute the width
of the stream. (This is the difference between the right and
left sides.)
m
7. Discharge is computed as the
volume of water in the stream passing by in one second.
DISCHARGE = DEPTH times WIDTH times AVERAGE
VELOCITY.
(Keep in mind that for this very simplistic stream the
velocity at a fixed depth is constant from side to side.
Water velocity in a real stream varies not only with depth,
but from side to side.)
What is the discharge of this stream? (Calculate to TWO
decimal places in cubic meters per second)

cu m / sec
