Water wheel formula, please ?
Hi. Unable to rescue my books at the moment, and several decades after the university years, cannot remember enough to calculate this :
A paddle wheel with 1mē flat paddles (1m x 1m) is turned by a river laminar flowing at 0.5 m/sec. What is its horsepower capability?
-The paddle wheel is attached to a pier end, the paddles submerge fully when at the low point.- This is not a case of water poured at the top of a wheel and turning the wheel by water weight. Friction can be not taken in account.
Or, if someone can lend me the formulas, thanks! Miguel
