A tank is filled with water to a height H, 26 m. A hole is punched in one of the walls at a depth h = 6.50 m below the water surface (see the figure). What is the distance x from the base of the tank to the point at which the resulting stream strikes the floor?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i knoe the equation to find out the answer is x = 2\sqrt{h(H-h)} but i have really have no idea why, i knoe i'm suppose to use the kinematic equation of rho g h = 1/2 rho v^2 + rho g (H-h)

can any1 explain to me?

thanks
