Expert Answer:

Width of the water canal = 30 dm = 30 x 10 cm = 300 cm Depth of the canal = 12 dm = 12 x 10 cm = 120 cm Velocity of the water = 10 km/hv = (10 x 1000 x 100)/60 cm/minute That is velocity of the water = (100000/6) cm/minute Distance covered in 30 minutes = 30 x (100000/6) = 500000 cm Volume of water = 500000 x 300 x 120 = 18,00,00,00,000 cubic centimeter Area irrigated by this water if 8 cm standing water is desired = (500000 x 300 x 120 /8) sq cm = 2,25,00,00,000 sq cm = 2,25,000 sq m =0.225 sq km
