One major source of electricity is hydroelectric generation, in which flowing water is redirected to turn a turbine generator. The power generated by this water flow is given by this formula: P = rho times Q times H times g P is the power generated by the water flow (watts = J/s = kg-m^2/s^2-1/s). rho is the water density (kg/m^3). Q is the volume flow rate (m^3/s). g is the acceleration caused by gravity (9.81 m/s^2). H is the distance (in m) water falls on its way to the generator, known as the head. a. Using this formula, write, compile, and run a C++ program that determines the watts generated by a head of 14 meters of water flowing at 20 m^3/s. The density of water is 998 kg/m^3 at 20 degree C. b. After verifying that your program is working correctly, use it to determine and display a table of the watts generated by a head of 10 to 28 meters of water, in 2-meter increments, flowing at 20 m^3/s.
