    To all Mathematics,Principles and Physics majors. To all Professors and Masters of such. Please lend an ear to hear my woes, that you might look upon me and see more than just the scientific illiteracy which surrounds me.

    I seek Knowledge. I know... It's found in all the books and institutions across the globe. But I wish directness and expediancy. I'm looking for any and all mathematical equations, Principle properties, Physics of... falling water. Specifically, Hoover Dam, the science of..., What kind of force is generated by the columns of water? What forces are needed to turn the turbines? Dynamics of the turbines,ie. blade pitch to force ratios. Anything else you can think of.

    If the actual mathematics aren't available, than any information on books that I might explore, that would be helpful too. I'm also thinking of going to the local college and posting an ad for students/teachers who would be willing to lend some of there time, but as I have ner'ly laid a foot on a campus, a little direction on where I might start would be nice.

    Thanx to all for your time.

    The sort of questions that you are asking are germane to Mechanical Engineering, and in particular to structural analysis.

    You might start by doing some research into that area of study.

    However, you have not indicated what your level of understanding of basic mathematics and physics is. Structural analysis can be a relatively sophisticated subject, starting with continuum mechanics.

    If you have a serious application, you might want to engage the services of a consulting engineer. That will not be cheap.

    It might also help a bit to know your general location, so that a local source of information might be recommended. Is there a major university nearby for instance ?
