Discussion :: Water Resources Engineering - Section 1 (Q.No.10)

10.

Pick up the correct statement from the following :

 [A]. When rainfall rate exceeds the infiltration capacity, the water enters the soil at full capacity rate [B]. When rainfall rate is less than the infiltration capacity, the infiltration rate is approximately equal to the rainfall rate [C]. The actual infiltration rate at any time may be equal to or less than the infiltration capacity [D]. The actual prevailing rate of infiltration of water in the soil at any time, is known as infiltration rate [E]. All the above.

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Roshan Khandekar said: (Feb 26, 2018) Option A is wrong because after 100% saturation i.e.full infiltration capacity. How could water enter the soil?

 Navneet said: (May 29, 2018) Yeah, A must be wrong.

 Subhash Kumar said: (Sep 19, 2018) The answe should be D.

 Saqib said: (Sep 22, 2019) A is the right answer because after rainfall exceeds the infiltration capacity, water enters with full saturation.

 Vijay Kumar said: (Dec 5, 2019) Infiltration capacity is nothing but MAXIMUM INFILTRATION RATE. What option A is saying is correct. So when the Rainfall rate is more than the Max Infiltration rate it's obvious that the water will enter at full capacity rate.

 Ermiyas said: (Feb 10, 2020) No, it will start to be a runoff.
