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

Consider a cylindrical tank filled with water with 2.5-m depth. The water emerges from a small hole at the center of the bottom, as shown in the figure. The diameter of the hole is 1 mm. The cross-section area of the vertical water stream decreases as it falls. Find the diameter of the water stream at the position 7.5 m from the hole.

2. Relevant equations

I think I have to address the continuity equation [itex]v_{1}a_2=v_2a_2[/itex], but I don't know how to start.

Any help would be appreciated.
