Why does deep water run slowly?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 31st Jul, 2014, 01:14: PM
As the depth of water in a river or a stream increases, the area of cross-section available to the flow increases. Consequently, velocity decreases in accordance with the equation of continuity. Thus, deep water runs slowly.
