1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution

I'm just a bit lost on how to find the change in pressure. I've posted a picture of my work thus far.

Can't read what you wrote but you seem to be on the right track, using Bernoulli.
