Ni is number of streams in the ith order

‘K’ is the principal stream order

Rb is average of bifurcation ratios of different orders

(Horton developed) Law of stream numbers

Bifurcation ratio (Rb): ratio of the number of streams of any order
to the number of streams of the next higher order

Stream order: Measure of the degree of stream branching
within a watershed

–‘nth’ order stream is formed by ≥ 2 streams of (n-1)th order
–Order of the principal channel is known as principal order
