(b) A tidal basin in Canada has an area of 240 km^2 with a mean tidal range of 12.4 m. Estimate the average power output assuming that the tidal period is 12.5 hours explaining your calculation.
(c) An ocean wave, with amplitude a = 1m and wavelength...(Please see the attached file for the complete question.)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 5, 2021, 12:51 am ad1c9bdddf
(b) Area of the basin, A= 240km^2 == 2.4*10^8 m^2
mean tidal range, h = 12.4 m
avaerage tidal period, t = 12.5 hr == 12.5*3600 s
Density of water, d = 1*10^3 kg/m^3
g = 9.8 m/s^2
Potential energy due to, tidal:
U = m*g*h/2
In first problem, average power which can be produced by using tidal basin water. In second problem group velocity of a given wave is estimated.
