1. Read Chapters 1 and 2.
2. Describe Q, q, K, T, b, Darcys law (in both the K and T forms), and mean pore
water velocity. Include dimensions where appropriate using M, L, T for mass,
length, and time.

1. Here is a flow net (computed the way we have always done these things). The head is
uniform on the top left half of the domain at 0 m and on the top right half of the domain at 1
m. As you can see from the head con

Slope is defined as the rise over the run: Slope = rise/run. The rise is the change in the y
value and the run is the change in the x value.
Slope = rise/run = y/x = (y2 y1)/(x2 x1)

1. Do a combination of Problems 3.2, 3.4, and 3.5 in your text. Solve for the recharge rate but
use the Dupuit assumption. Compute the water balance. Use a grid spacing consistent with a

We wish to simulate temporal changes in the confined aquifer heads between two
reservoirs (shown below). Assume the aquifer is 100 m long, has a T of 0.02 m2 min-1,
