Coursework - Water in guttering

Hi

For my physics coursework I want to investigate the energy lost due to friction when water travels along an piece of guttering.

However there seem to be many different and complex equations for this, which seems to depend of the type of flow etc etc

Could anyone help by telling me if this is even possible? and if so how could you calculate it?

thanks a lot

Hi ms3! Welcome to PF! :smile:

Sound horribly complicated …

depends on the depth of the water, the cross-section of the gutter, and the slope, among other things …

and modern plastic guttering even sags slightly between supports …

I'd do something else :wink:
