Water channel

The cross-section of the water channel is a trapezoid. The bottom width is 19.7 m, the water surface width is 28.5 m, and the side walls have a slope of 67°30' and 61°15'. Calculate how much water flows through the channel in 5 minutes if the water flows at a rate of 0.3 m/s.

Correct answer:

V =  19824.012 m3

Step-by-step explanation:
