10.65 Consider a backwater curve situated upstream of a dam in a rectangular reservoir (Fig. P10.65).

Given data are: normal depth y0 = 3.92 m, Q = 125 m3/s, S0 = 0.0004, n = 0.025, yA = 11 m, yB = 12 m (a) Identify the type of profile that exists in the reservoir. (b) Compute the distance between A and B. (c) Sketch the water surface and energy grade line.
