1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
ok i have a problem, i did a experiment to find the weir flow. Using q= cd 2/3 b root (2g) x h^(3/2)
I measured b the width of the weir and the height. i was asked to find out the discharge coefficient cd. what i did was add weight to an unknow mass. so the original mass mass flow was x then we added 2.5kg each time. so to find to the flow q i do x (unknow mass) /time. I know have two unknow variables x and cd, where cd isnt constant. so i cant equate two readings. is cd was constant then u could.
2. Relevant equations
q= cd 2/3 b root (2g) x h^(3/2)
3. The attempt at a solution
ive given up

i got it now, the coefficients aren't constant. the coefficient for the rectanglular flow is cd=0.611 +h/z. so i can get the mass. and for the triangular weir cd is 0.58. but because my results are wrong. i cant sub these values into the equation to get the original flow, then the mass.
