Solving for mean depth.

#### Inputs:

 flow velocity (V) meter/second centimeter/hour centimeter/second foot/day foot/second inch/hour inch/second kilometer/hour kilometer/second knot mach sea level 15 C meter/day mile/hour mile/second millimeter/second speed of light in vacuum yard/second acceleration of gravity (g) meter/second^2 centimeter/second^2 foot/second^2 inch/second^2 kilometer/second^2 mile/second^2 millimeter/second^2 yard/second^2 Froude number (F)

 |

#### Conversions:

 flow velocity (V) = 0 = 0 meter/second acceleration of gravity (g) = 0 = 0 meter/second^2 Froude number (F) = 0 = 0

#### Solution:

 mean depth (hm) = HAS NOT BEEN CALCULATED
