Question

Water flowing through a sluice gate undergoes a hydraulic jump, as shown. The velocity of the water is 1.25 m/s before reaching the gate and 4 m/s after the jump. Determine the flow rate of water through the gate per meter of width, the flow depths y1 and y2, and the energy dissipation ratio of the jump.
