DEFINE WATER PERCOLATION RATE ???
Hi. Percolate means filter or ooze gradually, especially through a porous surface. Here percolation means passage of water from the surface into the soil.
Formula for percolation rate:-
Rate of percolation = Amount of water(in ml)
Percolation time(in mins)
Ammount of water = 500 ml
Time of perculation = 50 mins.
Rate of perculation = 500 ml
= 10 ml/ min.
Hope my anser helps :) . Cheers!!!
percolation rate of water is different in different types of soil . it is the highest in the sandy soil and least in the clayey soil. to calculate the percolation rate use this formula-
percolation rate (ml/min)amount of water(ml)/percolation time
percolation refers to the ability of the soil to absorb water or liquids
Percolation of soil is the infiltration of it, which is important because it determines if water placed on soil will either soak through or cause runoff or even worse erosion.
Percolation rate is the rate at which water moves through the soil.
The soil will pass rapidly through well drained soil whereas the water will be collected on the soil with poor percolation rate which can be harmful to the plants.
The percolation rate is highest in sandy soil and least in clayey soil.
to know the percolation rate the formulae is : given time/amount of water
In physics, chemistry and materials science, percolation refers to the movement and filtering of fluids through porous materials. It is described by Darcy's law. Broader applications have since been developed that cover connectivity of many systems modeled as lattices or graphs, analogous to connectivity of lattice components in the filtration problem that modulates capacity for percolation.
