New engineer here. This is what happens when the fish are not bitting. If a dam gate is open and water starts flowing thru the dam, how long does it take for a boat 10 miles away to start floating towards the dam? For numbers, let's say the gate is 20ft X 20ft and is 60ft below the water level. The lake is 30ft deep and is 600 feet across. I can calculate the flow thru the gate and the volumme of water in the lake to the boat and divide, but I don't think this is how to work this problem. Any formulas and help is appreciated.
