Determining a stream's depth, width, velocity and
discharge: For this stream the average velocity is the same no matter
what position on the tape it is measured (provided the depth is the same).
Answer the questions below.
7. Discharge is computed as the
volume of water in the stream passing by in one second.
DISCHARGE = DEPTH times WIDTH times AVERAGE
(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)
