A river 2m deep and 45m wide is flowing at the rate of 3km per hour. Find the volume of water that run into the sea per minute.

Given that rate of flow 3 km/h

Depth (h) of river = 2 m

Width (b) of river = 45 m

Area of cross-section of river

= 45 × 2 = 90 m2

Rate of flow 3 km/h= 3 × 1000/60

= 50 m/min

Volume of water is flowing in cross-section in 1 minute is= 90 × 50 = 4500 m3 per minute
