Sometimes streams and rivers run in fairly straight lines. Sometimes, they meander or curve and wander. What is your idea about how faster water affects the shape of a stream or river?
A) Faster streams are straighter.
B) Faster streams curve more.
C) The speed of the stream doesn't affect its shape.

Please Help!!!! Thanks.

    Meanders are associate with low energy systems, where the water is moving very slowly.

    Higher energy (fast flowing) rivers tend to straighten out bends and do not meander.
