Question 2

Wetted perimeter of a regime channel for a discharge of 64 cumecs as per Lacey's theory will be___m.

Question 3

A canal irrigates a portion of a culturable command area to grow sugarcane and wheat. The average discharges required to grow sugarcane and wheat are, respectively, 0.36 and .27 cumes. The time factor is 0.9. the required design capacity of the canel is
