A small dutch boy, Hansel, and his little sister, gretal, were walking home from school along a polder when they saw a stream of water squirting horizontally fom a hole in the dyke. Hansel used a meter stick and found that the hole was a distance Y1= 1.05 m above the polder and that the water landed a distance X1= 1.51 meters from the base of the dyke. Hansel sent gretal running for help and stuck his finger, which had a cross sectional area A1= 1.00 cm^2 into the hole. While hansel waited for help, hansel established a crtesian coordinate system with +x in the direction of the stream and +y up with the origin at the polder.

(A) Time, T, the water was in the air

(B) the distance of the hole, Y2, below the surface of the north sea.

(C) the velocity Vo,x of the water as it exits the hole

(D) The velocity, V, of the water as it hits the polder

(E) The cross sectional area, A, of the stream of water as it hits the polder

2. Relevant equations

the velocity and time equations need to be used

3. The attempt at a solution

I have been trying the past week to solve this problem and I do not know what equations I am suppose to use and how I am suppose to find them. I am completely lost on this problem and any help would be wonderful.
