|Discharge (m³/sec.)||Freeboard (m.)|
|1 to 5||0.50|

|30 to 150||0.90|
Sol. Estimate for electrical wiring is prepared on the basis of number of points.
Sol. Surface loading rate of tank or surface overflow rate is the important parameter for designing of tank as it should be less than settling velocity of discrete particles for effective sedimentation.
Sol. Newton’s law states that the shear stress is directly proportional to the rate of shear strain for Newtonian fluid.
