1. Water is running out of a faucet, falling straight down, with an initial speed of 0.500 m/s. At what

distance below the faucet is the radius of the stream reduced to one-half its value at the faucet?

I tried doing this by using Bernoullis equation and replacing r with 1/2r for the bottom part of the drop. Initially i cancelled the pressures (since they are same all points) and assumed the initial height to be zero therefore giving 1/2v^2= 1/2vdrop^2+gh and got stuck after that

Any help is much appreciated
