Question

Consider a river flowing toward a lake at an aver- age velocity of 3 m/s at a rate of $500 m^3/s$ at a location 90 m above the lake surface. Determine the total mechanical energy of the river water per unit mass and the power generation potential of the entire river at that location.

Solution

1 of 4#### $\text{\underline{Knowns and requirements }}$

A river is flowing toward a lake with an average velocity ($v=3$ m/s) at rate of ($\dot V=500\text{ m}^3/$s). The elevation difference between the lake and the river is about $90$ m.

It's required to determine the total energy of water per unit mass and total power generated.
