5. What is the equation of the curve AB?

a) y + $$\frac{Q^2}{2gy}$$
b) y + $$\frac{Q}{2gy}$$
c) y + $$\frac{Q^2}{2gy^2}$$
d) y + $$\frac{Q}{2gy^2}$$
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The curve AB (Specific Energy curve) is the combination of a parabola and a straight line, hence the valid equation is
y + $$\frac{Q}{2gy^2}$$
