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

An open rectangular water tank 1.2 m x 1.2 m x 2.6 m (height) is completely filled with water. As the tap at the bottom is opened, the flow rate from the tap at that moment is

2.0 x 10-4 m3 /s.

At this moment, calculate the

(i) the velocity of the water surface in the tank.

(ii) the velocity of the water coming out of the tap.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
