Problem: 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? 

FREE Expert Solution

Equation of continuity:

A1v1=A2v2

Bernoulli's equation:

P1+12ρv12+ρgy1=P2+12ρv22+ρgy2

From the equation of continuity:

v1 = (A2V2)/A1 = [(5.0)(3.0)]/10 = 1.5 m/s
