onlinechannel05.php:   Normal and critical depth in a prismatic channel

Definition sketch for a prismatic channel
Normal depth formulas

A = y(b + zy)
P = b + 2y(1 + z2)1/2
T = b + 2zy
R = A/P
D = A/T
Q = (k/n) AR2/3S1/2
V = Q/A
F = V/(gD)1/2
    Critical depth formulas

F2 = (Q2T)/(gA3)
F = 1
(Q2/g)T - A3 = 0
A = y(b + zy)
T = b + 2zy
V = Q/A
D= A/T
