a) 18.75 ft^2

b) 2.5 ft

c) 12.07 ft

d) 10 ft

e) 1.553 ft

f) 1.875 ft

Explanation:

Given data :

5.0-ft bed width, ( b )

2.5-ft depth ( y )

1 : 1 side slope

Evaluate

a) Area of trapezoidal section

A = by + my^2

we assume m = 1

A = [5 + (1 * 2.5 ) ] *2.5

= ( 7.5 ) 2.5  = 18.75 ft^2

b) Calculate water depth

water depth = 2.5 ft

c) Calculate wetted perimeter

P = b + 2y √ 1 + m^2

= 5 + (2.5*2) √ 1 + 1 ^2  =   12.07 ft

d) calculate top width

T = b + 2my

= 5 + 2 ( 1 * 2.5 ) = 10 ft

R = A / P = 18.75 / 12.07

= 1.553 ft

f) calculate hydraulic depth

D = A / T = 18.75 / 10 = 1.875 ft

Because if a good speech is delivered badly it can bore the audience, confuse them, or make them distrust the speakeri think they all come back to this one, except that last answer because that is false. if your audience starts making fun of you or gets distracted it is because they are either bored, confused or distrust you.
