Chezy equation
An equation used to compute the velocity of uniform flow in an open channel: mean velocity of flow (V) equals the Chezy coefficient (c) times the square root of the product of hydraulic radius in feet (R) times the slope of the channel [1]. See also Froude number; Manning equation; Reynolds number.
