Hey.. I was looking over a physics team test, and I can't figure out how to solve this problem. I've asked my teachers and they can't help me either. :grumpy:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Water runs out of a horizontal drainpipe at a rate of 120 kg per minute. It falls 3.2 m to the ground. Assuming the water doesn't splash up, what average force does it exert on the ground?

I'm not sure where to start with this- I believe that if the diameter of the pipe was given, you could find the velocity of the water, but without it I'm not sure where to begin. Just a little help would be greatly appriciated.
