An alternator attached to a water turbine generates 35 Watts given 50 feet of head and 10 gallons per minute. Assuming that the efficiency of the alternator is 50%, is it possible for me to find the angular velocity from this information?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If so, how would I do it?
