A Cal Poly SLO student falls into a long rectangular concrete flood control channel that carries 35,000 cfs during a major storm. The channel is 50 ft wide with an average slope of 3.2%. Answer the following: a) Estimate how many seconds for student to travel 1 mile (5,280 ft) downstream b) Calculate Froude number and state whether a hydraulic jump is possible c) Estimate maximum water depth in channel at which a hydraulic jump could form d) Briefly explain why depth immediately after approximately equal downstream normal depth (i.e. tailwater depth) hydraulic jump should
