test tomm so plz reply back fast

a concrete bridge over a river has an underside in the shape of a parabolic arch. At water level, the arch is 30 mwide. it has maximum heigt of 10m above the water. the minimum vertical thickness of the concrete is 1.5m.

1-find the algebraic relation that represents the shape of the arch?
2-what is the vertical thickness of the concrete 3m from the centre of the arch?
3-if the water level rises 2m, how wide will the arch be at this new level?


can u plz explain each answer in detail as soon as possible plz
