Problem 2. The aquifer described below has a gradient of 0.00115, a hydraulic conductivity of 1000 m/day, and a porosity of 0.23. A. What is the Darcy velocity? B. What

is the average linear velocity of the groundwater? C. If the front edge of a plume is perfectly straight, how long would it take to travel to well 1 after first arriving (simultaneously) at wells 2 and 3, assuming a retardation factor of 2?
