Derivation of discharge over rectangular weir

    How does the velocity at an elemental height h equates to √(2gh)? My application of Bernoulli's equation is not yielding the result. Please show the process.

    Thank you

    So what is the difference between your handling of Bernoulli and, e.g., this one ?

    Thank You so much.
    The exiting fluid also experiences same atmospheric pressure as the top point.
