Hi Everyone,
I am working on my class project and need some help.
I am in the process of assuming a height of dam and I have to calculate how much area of land which shall get submerged ( the water spread area of a dam) as the height of the water backed up behind the dam shall increase.
If anyone has any idea how to do it please let me know.

Thanks very much.
