We'll use the kinematic equation:

$\overline{)\mathbf{}{\mathbf{\u2206}}{\mathbf{x}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}{{\mathbf{v}}}_{{\mathbf{0}}}{\mathbf{t}}{\mathbf{+}}{\frac{1}{2}}{\mathbf{a}}{{\mathbf{t}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

A pipe discharges storm water into a creek. Water flows horizontally out of the pipe at 1.8 m/s, and the end of the pipe is 2.3 m above the creek.

How far out from the end of the pipe is the point where the stream of water meets the creek
