## Homework Statement

if the flow rate of a liquid from a 10mm hole in a storage tank holding 5m of a liquid with a density of 490 kg/s, is 0.207 kg/s how far will this stream travel before it hits the ground and will it be contained by a dike 1 m away that is 1 m high

## Homework Equations

Q=pAV => Q/pA = V

s=ut+1/2at^2

v=d/t

## The Attempt at a Solution

so using the eqn Q/pA = V i get a resultant velocity of 5.45 m/s

using the vectors for the horizontal and vertical distances and the eqn s=ut+1/2at^2 I found that with this velocity the stream will travel for 0.7824s

and then using the eqn v=d/t and changing it to find distnace vt= d i found that the stream would travel 4.26m

I am uncertain how to calculate how to determine if the dike will contain the flow, I believe it wont due to the height of the hole and the mass flow rate and velocity of the stream
