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

The pressure in domestic water pipes is typically 60 psi above the atmospheric pressure. If the viscous effects are neglected, determine the height reached by a jet of water through a small hole in the top of the pipe.

2. Relevant equations

I am using the Bernoullis equation;

(P1/Rho) + gZ1 + (V1^2/2) = (P2/Rho) + gZ2 + (V2^2/2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I take

Z1 = 0 (surface of the pipe)

V2 = 0 (Max height)

P1 = Atmospheric pressure + 60 = 74.7 psi

g = 32.174 ft/sec^2

question is what should P2 be? will it be just atmospehric pressure or will it be 0
