Question

1- Given an initial infiltration capacity fo of 3 in/hr and a time constant k of 0.29 hr',use the Horton infiltration equation to compute the infiltration capacity as a function

of time, fp(t), if the asymptotic infiltration capacity fe is 0.55 in/hr. For the first 10 hours, estimate the total potential volume of water infiltrated in inches.
