Question

A river 3 m deep and 40 m wide is flowing at the rate of 2 km per hour. How much water will fall into the sea in a minute?

Solution

Rate of water flow = 2 km per hour

=(2000/60)"m/min"

=(100/3)"m/min"

Depth (h) of river = 3 m

Width (b) of river = 40 m

"Volume of water flowed in 1 min "=(100/3xx40xx3)m^3=4000m^3

Therefore, in 1 minute, 4000 m3 water will fall in the sea.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
