A 5120 acre farm is bounded by an irrigation canal on one end and a drainage ditch on another. If the hydraulic head in the canal is 100 ft and in the drainage ditch it is 80 ft calculate the maximum mounding height and the mounding distance from the canal that will occur if the farmer irrigates at a rate of 2 acre-ft/acre/year.
