The velocity of the water that comes out of the opening in the attached diagram can be found using Bernoulli equation, as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

v = sqrt (2gh)

Once the water exits the hole, I am not sure how to answer questions like the following: Can I use conservation of energy and momentum. Also can I use the equations in kinematics (ie. S = ut + 1/2 a t^2, v=u+at,...)

1. Time for the water to hit the ground,

2. What is the value of H

3. What is the horizontal distance of flight of water

4. What is the acceleration ( acce. of gravity??)

Thanks a lot.

Gamma.
