# MCQs on Geometrical Properties of Triangular Section – 1

What is the wetted area for a triangular channel having depth y and the side slope being Z?

a) Zy2

b) 2Zy

c) Zy

d) Z2 y

**
View Answer**

a
Explanation:The Area of the Triangle = (½) (base) (height)
Base = Zy+Zy = 2Zy
Area = (1/2) (2Zy) (y)
Area = Zy2.
Calculate the wetted perimeter of a triangular section having depth y and the side slope is Z.

d
Explanation: Wetted perimeter = Length of the sides (excluding the base)
Calculate the wetted perimeter of a triangular section having a depth of 4m and the side slope is1H:1V.

a) 7.94m

b) 8.94m

c) 9.94m

d) 10.94m

b
Explanation:
Estimate the wetted area of a triangular channel having a depth of 5m and the side slope is 2H:1V.

a) 50m2

b) 60m2

c) 70m2

d) 80m2

**
View Answer**

a

Explanation: Wetted area = Zy2

= 2(52)

= 50m2.

What is the top width of a triangular channel having a depth y and side slope Z?

a) Zy

b) Zy2

c) 2Zy

d) ½Zy

**
View Answer**

c

Explanation: Top width = (Zy+Zy)

= 2Zy.

Determine the hydraulic depth of a triangular channel having the side slope Z and depth y.

b) y/2

c) 2y

d) y2

**
View Answer**

b
Explanation:
Estimate the top width of a triangular channel having a side slope of 1H:2V and depth of 5m.

a) 4m

b) 5m

c) 6m

d) 7m

**
View Answer**

b

Explanation: Top Width = 2Zy

Top Width = (2)(1/2)(5)

Top Width = 5m.
