2 (a) A trapezoidal channel with a side slope of 1:1 has to be designed to convey 10m3/sec at a velocity of 2 m/sec, so that the amount of concrete lining for the bed and sides is minimum. Calculates the area of lining required for one meter length of channel. The rugosity coefficient N=0.015, calculate the bed slope the channel for uniform flow.

3 (b) A kite of dimensions 0.8 × 0.8 m and weighing 6 N is maintain in air at an angel of 10° to the horizontal. The string attached to the kite makes an angel of 45° to the horizontal and at this position, the drag and lift coefficients are estimated to be 0.6 and 0.8 respectively. Determine wind speed and tension in the string.
