2. [8 marks] Water enters a reach of a horizontal rectangular channel where y1 = 0.5 m, b = 7.5
m and Q = 20 m3/s (see figure below). A hydraulic jump occurs between locations 1 and 2. On
the sill (location 3) critical conditions exist. Other than across
CIVL 350 Problem Set 2 Solutions: Uniform Flow
2. Note that this solution uses slightly different equations to get A and P
compared to the class notes. The final solutions, however, are the same.
NOTE: the solution letters (a), (b), etc. do not corr
