Water Displacement

Lw
Lc
Dc
Dh
C
C = Lw ÷ Lc / 1 – (Dc / Dh)2

C = Number of explosives cartridges required to rise above standing water

Lw = Length of the standing water column [ft]

Lc = Length of one explosives cartridge [ft]

Dc = Diameter of explosives cartridges [in]

Dh = Diameter of blast-hole [in]
