You’re holding a hose at waist height and spraying water horizontally with it. The hose nozzle has a diameter of 1.80 cm, and the water splashes on the ground a distance of 0.950 m horizontally from the nozzle. Suppose you now constrict the nozzle to a diameter of 0.750 cm; how far horizontally from the nozzle will the water travel before hitting the ground? (Ignore air resistance.)
