This type of a device is called a weir . The height of the water, ܪ , above the weir crest is referred to as the head and can be used to determine the flo-wrate through the channel. Assume that ܳ is a function of the head, ܪ , the channel width, ܾ , and the acceleration of gravity, ݃ . Determine a suitable set of dimensionless variables for this problem.
