    Hi everyone, I am currently doing Physics at UNI but I haven't done it in high school. I was wondering if you guys can help me by guiding me on what to do? Much appreciated.

    I am not doing a Physics Degree. I am doing Physics as an online course as an elective and I have no idea what the questions are on about as I have not done Physics since Year 10.

    What have you done so far on the problem? What don't you understand properly?

    I don't understand how to use the equation.

    Bernoulli's equation has quantities like pressure, speed, and height in it. The problem statement has information about pressure, speed, and height in it. It appears, at first glance anyway, that substitution of the given quantities into Bernoulli's equation is the way to go.

    Part of the problem statement includes the viscosity of water, but I don't think that you're supposed to use that in your calculations and instead assume an idealized flow, which is what most Bernoulli problems do.
