Equation of continuity:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{A}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{v}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{A}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{v}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

Bernoulli's equation:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{+}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{\rho}}{{{\mathbf{v}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{\rho}}{\mathbf{g}}{{\mathbf{y}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{+}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{\rho}}{{\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{2}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{\rho}}{\mathbf{g}}{{\mathbf{y}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

From the equation of continuity:

v_{1} = (A_{2}V_{2})/A_{1} = [(5.0)(3.0)]/10 = 1.5 m/s

Water flows from the pipe shown in the figure with a speed of 3.0m/s.

What is the height *h* of the standing column of water?
