Question

Consider a long sewer pipe, half full of water, sloping

downward at angle θ . Antoine Chézy in 1768 determined

that the average velocity of such an open channel fl ow

should be V ≈ C √R tan θ , where R is the pipe radius and

C is a constant. How does this famous formula relate to the

steady fl ow energy equation applied to a length L of the

channel?
