1) The bed of a canal falls 2.63ft. vertically in a horizontal distance equal to 2150 ft. The rate of slope of the hydraulic grade line for the canal is? .00164, .00082, .00122, .00041

2) An open channel having a rectangular cross section is laid so that the rate of grade is .00048. The width of the channel is 10.00 ft., and the value of n in Kutter's formula may be taken as 0.011. When the depth of the water in the channel is 4.00 ft, the velocity computed be the Chezy formula is? 6.1 fps, 4.1 fps, 5.1 fps, 3.1 fps.
