  1. given data,

    Width of the canal = 5.4 m

    Depth of the canal = 1.8 m

    Height of the standing water needed for irrigation = 10 cm = 0.1 m

    Speed of the flowing water = 25 km/h = 25000/60 = 1250/3 m/min

    Volume of water flowing out of the canal in 1 min

    = Area of opening of canal ×1250/3

    = 5. 4 ×1. 8 ×1250/3

    = 4050 m³

    ∴ Volume of water flowing out of the canal in 40 min = 40 × 4050 m³

    = 162000 m³

    Area of irrigation = [Volume of water flowing out from canal in 40 min] / [Height of the standing water needed for irrigation ]

    = 162000/0.1

    = 1620000 m²

    ∴ the area irrigated in 40 minutes is 1620000 m²
