    a dam of height H has a hole half way down to the base. how far outward from the base does the stream hit the ground?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i think you have to use bernoulli's equation right?
    first find velocity then distance x right?

    Assume that the fluid is just a ball. If someone throws a ball from an elevated location, what information must be known in order to determine how far he throws it?
