Explain why is the velocity of water in a river less on the banks and large in the middle?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 1st Aug, 2014, 11:03: AM
Due to large force of adhesion between the water streams and the bank of the river, the velocity of water is quite small near the bank as compared to that in the middle of it.
