(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The tip of the Pitot tube is at the top of the jet. Calculate the flowrate and the angle θ .

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Please see attached images. 1 is the question and 1 is my attempted solution.

I think I perhaps have done the first part wrong where I calculate the horizontal component of the velocity. I assume the horizontal velocity remains constant throughout the trajectory, and that that the change in height z in the pitot tube is due to this velocity such that:

v=sqrt(2gz)

also, the lecturer has provided information that the fluid is water (density 1g/cm^3) and I haven't used this information hence my post here regarding my method.

Thanks for your time.
