According to Robert E. Horton, the equation of infiltration capacity curve, is (where letters carry their usual meanings)
f = fc (fo - fc) ekt
f = ft - (fo - fc) e-kt
f = ft + (fo - fc) e-kt
f = f + (fo - fc) ekt

Yes, please explain.

fp = fc + (fo - fc)e-kt.
where fp = the infiltration capacity (depth/time) at some time t.
k = a constant representing the rate of decrease in f capacity,
fc = a final or equilibrium capacity,
f0 = the initial infiltration capacity.

f(t) = f(c)+(f0-fc)*e^(-kt) is the correct Horton equation.

It is F = fc+(fo-fc)e^-kt.

Yes, I agree @Mallikarjun.

Bhagwat said:   6 years ago
The Correct answer is A.

C only correct but it should be f(t)=fc + (fo - fc) e-kt.
