How to Calculate Celerity of the Wave?
Celerity of the Wave calculator uses celerity_of_the_wave = sqrt([g]*Depth of Point 1*(1+1.5*(Height/Depth of Point 1)+0.5*(Height/Depth of Point 1)*(Height/Depth of Point 1))) to calculate the Celerity of the Wave, The Celerity of the Wave is defined as sudden changes of flow depth creates Celerity (Wave Velocity) in the flow in addition to the normal water velocity of the channels. Celerity of the Wave and is denoted by C symbol.
How to calculate Celerity of the Wave using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Celerity of the Wave, enter Depth of Point 1 (h _{1}) and Height (h) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Celerity of the Wave calculation can be explained with given input values -> 18.5794 = sqrt([g]*10*(1+1.5*(12/10)+0.5*(12/10)*(12/10))).
