## Calculation of the collection area
%% Cell type:markdown id: tags:
The hydraulic load is $H_{load} = 0.37 m \cdot m^{-2} \cdot j^{-1}$. The radius $r$ of the collection plate to collect a daily volume of $V$ de 2 L can be calculated as follow.
%% Cell type:code id: tags:
import math
H_load = 0.37 # m/m2/j
V = 2/1000 # m3
r = math.sqrt(V/H_load/math.pi)
print("The radius must be equal to {} cm.".format(math.floor(r*100)))
