Water channel

The cross section of the water channel is a trapezoid. The width of the bottom is 19.7 m, the water surface width is 28.5 m, 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 flow at rate 0.3 m/s.

Correct answer:

V =  19824.012 m3
