1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A continuous stream of water is flowing out of a faucet and falling into a sink below. Explain why this stream of water is narrower at the bottom (near the sink) than at the top (near the faucet). Hint: Think about the change in velocity and the change in pressure as the water falls. 2. Relevant equations P1+.5pv21+pgy1=P2+.5pv22+pgy2 3. The attempt at a solution As the water falls the velocity should increase so the pressure should decrease. Wouldn't a decrease in pressure cause the water to spread out near the bottom?
