## Homework Statement

A can is filled with water to a depth of 37cm. A hole 12 cm above the obttom of the can produces a stream that is directed at a 34 degree angle ave the horizontal. Find the range and max height of this stream.

## The Attempt at a Solution

.v=sqrt2gh

=sqrt 2x9.81x (0.37m-0.12m)

= 2.21m/s

using the angles to get the vertical velocity: 2.21m/sxsin34=1.26m/s

I then use the eqn vf^2=vi^2+2ad where a=g

ultimately getting 7.8cm which I add to the 12cm to get approx 20cm as max height

as for the range, am i able to use the same velocity except with the x-component velocity?

Anyways, I'm slightly confused now. Thanks for any help!
