**bobpursley**, Monday, March 23, 2009 at 10:28amIsn't this Darcy's law?

**Reiny**, Monday, March 23, 2009 at 10:28amI would seem to me that the velocity would be a function of many factors, including the height above the surface, the distance from the creek and the "permeability" of the subsurface, as seen in the data that you show.

You do not state how these are related and connected, and it would be unreasonable to expect anybody here to be familiar with such a topic.

Are they stated in the problem?

For the velocity, you also need to know the porosity

how presumptuous of me to assume that nobody would be familiar with this.

I forgot that you are engineering and physics experts.

This simple "number-cruncher" says sorry.
