Tuesday's Lecture .Chapter 8 picks ups on Energy and Momentum principles covered in Chapter 4. We integrate both the energy and momentum equations so that we can apply them to highly simplified, macroscopic one-dimensional steady flows. We will see on Thursday how these representations are useful in the simplified flume setting in lab. However, it will not be until Chapters 9-11 and our hydraulic modeling labs that we learn how to apply energy and momentum relations in a form that is more useful for looking at flow in natural channels.
