Problem: River Pascal with a volume flow rate of 5.0 x 105 L/s joins with River Archimedes, which carries 10.0 x 105 L/s, to form the Bernoulli River. The Bernoulli River is 150m wide and 10 m deep. What is the speed of the water in the Bernoulli River?

FREE Expert Solution

Speed is:

v = flow rate/area

Flow rate at Bernoulli river is 5.0 × 105 + 10.0 × 105 = 15.0 × 105 L/s
