Lab Worksheet Hypotheses Activity 1. Sinuosity hypothesis: The higher elevation should result to a curvier stream. Velocity hypothesis: The higher angle the more velocity the water will have. Relief hypothesis: The higher elevation will produce a higher speed of water will produce a faster relief. Gradient hypothesis: The elevation will affect the gradient with a longer distance. 1

Activity 2. Sinuosity hypothesis: The lower elevation should result to a straighter stream. Velocity hypothesis: The lower angle the less velocity the water will have. Relief hypothesis: The lower elevation will produce a slower speed of water will produce a slower relief. Gradient hypothesis: The elevation will affect the gradient with a shorter distance continued on next page 2 Carolina Distance Learning

Calculations Activity 1. Sinuosity: curvy distance (cm)/straight distance (cm) = sinuosity (no units) Activity 2. Sinuosity: curvy distance (cm)/straight distance (cm) = sinuosity (no units) 40 / 38 =1.05 25 / 25 =1 Both the curvy and straight distances are measurements taken from the stream formation in the stream table. Please refer to Activity 1 for more details. Velocity: distance traveled (cm)/time it takes to travel (s) = velocity (cm/s) Both the curvy and straight distances are measurements taken from the stream formation in the stream table. Please refer to Activity 1 for more details. Velocity: distance traveled (cm)/time it takes to travel (s) = velocity (cm/s) 40 / 4 =10 25 / 6 =4.17 The distance a small piece of paper travels downstream divided by how long it takes to get downstream is the velocity. Refer to Activity 1 for more details. Relief: highest elevation (cm) – lowest elevation (cm) = relief (cm) The distance a small piece of paper travels downstream divided by how long it takes to get downstream is the velocity. Refer to Activity 1 for more details.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
